Spaces not showing up in searching "IN SPACE"

Hey there.

when we search normally using the search bar in Confluence and then trying to filter the search on a specific Space using the IN SPACE filter on the left side, it always shows No matches found.

I can see all Spaces in the Space Directory.

I already tried a Re-Indexing in Confluence and even a Re-Index from Scratch following this guide:

But the issue persists.

Here are two screenshots showing the behavior. I have a Space called Angular. When I try to filter on it in the search it won't find the Space. Happens with all Spaces.

We updated Confluence a month ago, but I don't know if this issue occured before.


Confluence Server Version: 7.12.1


Thank you for any help!

Turns out I just had to enable "Quick Search" under "Further Configuration" in the Settings.

Thanks for sharing the solution

Hello @Ju ,

unfortunately, I can't solve or recreate your problem either. But maybe you are interested in an alternative, more powerful search solution for Confluence. Here you can find more information: iFinder Confluence Search and iFinder Search Macro.
