The Confluence query cannot return the correct result

Ollie Guan Community Leader Dec 02, 2021

There is a paragraph of text on my page, for example


Use My.nameisollie, Confluence can find the page, but no matter whether it is queried through My or nameisollie, the page cannot be returned.


Affected version:7.13.2


BTW, I did a similar test in Confluence Cloud, and the results are consistent, and the expected page cannot be returned.

If you need to find a content, you can use '*' or '?' to get more result. For example:
