Since upgrade to Confluence 8.5 LiveSearch placeholder stopped working.

Hi all concerning the LiveSearch Macro


We noticed that the placeholder text is no more displayed since we upgraded from 7.19 to 8.5

Is this a know issue?

Hello, we are having the same problem with the livesearch macro. After upgrading from 7.19.12 to 8.5.x. I have gone through the atlassian-confluence.log file, but I can't find anything that indicates that anything is wrong. The live search macro is set up restricted to @self, restrict labels: none, size: large, placeholder text: "This is a test" Content type: page, additional information: "Space name"

I have tested the page/space using the Brave browser and Firefox, both fail. Operating system: Red hat Enterprise Linux 9.

Hi @Pascal Lisot ,


The question is hard to answer. Would it be possible to share the atlassian-confluence.log from your Confluence home-dir?

If you have an active license, you also can contact with this.

Hi Bert,

Thanks for your advice we will check our log and contact Atlassian support Team.
