Hello @Cristian Andres Ciambrignoni !

As I understand, you need to find a specific piece of text within Confluence. What I did not understand is if this is within a page in Confluence itself or within an attachment.

For both situations, you should be able to use Confluence search to point your search results as close as possible of your needed material. You can check our documentation on the Search engine here:


Confluence searches it’s own Pages and also the content of some file types. Here is an excerpt from our documentation:

How Confluence search works

When you enter a search term, Confluence looks for content in all spaces (including personal spaces), pages, mail, personal profiles, and space descriptions. It also looks at the content of some attached file types (Word, Text, PowerPoint, Excel, PDF, and HTML).

If you are looking for something in attachments, you can limit your search to attachment by using:


If your pages happens to have been labeled, you can limit the search to that specific label with this:


If your label contains the – character, you should envelop the labelText value with quotes, like this:



You can get more information on the search fields used in Confluence here:
