why cann't I find some spaces created already through confluence search fields by system administrator? Confluence version is 5.7

The spaces directory only lists the spaces you have "can use" rights in.

Your admin privileges include the ability to see all spaces in the admin pages, and update the permissions in there, but it does not give you a blanket "can see everything because I'm an admin" right (it's a bad permission model and one that Atlassian stays away from)

Thanks for your reply.I have  found the reason from https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/content-index-administration-148844.html and solved it by rebuilding the search index.



You need to be careful with that case.

If the problem was "I don't see them immediately", then that's because it takes a few minutes to catch up.  Do not re-index manually, leave it for a few minutes.

If the problem was "I don't see them after the system has had time to index it all", then you have another problem - your system is being broken by something that stops the indexing from working properly.  You really need to investigate that and fix it.

it's the second one. I have investigated the confluence database and  found that a space created by someone  don't have the home page.Maybe it's the reason that cause the indexing fails.

I have met this problem that the indexing fails. Every time  adding bolgs or pages, it will need to rebuild the indexing . It's not the reason above. Is there a way to solve this problem?

You need to start by reading the logs to see what the indexing is doing, it should be showing errors when it fails.


Index not working due to 'journal state store is corrupt.I have solved it.Thanks.

And  I  can't  see all the spaces  in the spaces directory.Only  some. I don't know what  the problem  is.
