iFinder Confluence Search now comes with a search macro for Confluence.
This macro is similar to the Livesearch macro, but with a much wider scope of functions. For example, in addition to a search bar, search results can now also be shown in a list directly on a Confluence page.
The search macro helps users quickly and easily compile a list of documents and content (such as a collection of standard operating procedures or product data sheets), which may even be located in completely different areas of Confluence. It saves users a great deal of time at work and helps reduce costs. The search macro also significantly improves usability both for administrators and users, since information and important company knowledge can be found and deployed quickly, and are always up to date thanks to dynamic retrieval. A dynamic list generated by a search is displayed on a Confluence page (search-based application).
Alternatively, a search bar is provided on a Confluence page/space, which is preconfigured for the specific user. There’s no need to switch to a separate search platform; users can search directly within the Confluence space without losing the thematic context.
The search macro delivers the following to Confluence users directly on a Confluence page:
The search results and lists displayed by the macro are created dynamically; the search results in the macro are constantly refreshed. If the source or content changes, this is always reflected in the macro in real time. The search results also always take into account the user’s access rights, and changes to a user’s privileges are also always incorporated in the search macro in real time.
Plus, iFinder Confluence Search provides the option of integrating additional sources and applications (license required for this product add-on). This search macro can then be used to search for any documents from Jira, file shares, and many other data sources and/or have them displayed dynamically on a Confluence page.
The iFinder Confluence Search macro allows for multiple ways of presenting the search or search results. Different display options can be selected in the macro settings:
Displays a dynamic list with preconfigured search results. For example: Show only XLS documents from source/space x, and incorporate different search filters (space, labels, author, language, etc.), the search terms like ‘Expense AND report NOT directors,’ and other search settings (in this example, with preview snippet).
A search bar is displayed alongside the preconfigured search results. Search users can then perform the preconfigured search within a limited area.
For example: “Search for PDF documents only within this space.”
Filters and facets are shown alongside the preconfigured search results.
The entire iFinder Confluence Search UI (search bar, result list, facets & filters) is displayed on a Confluence page with the set search settings applied.
All iFinder Confluence Search settings can be used. These include, for example:
iFinder Confluence Search must be installed first.
The search URL generated in the process described above can naturally be stored elsewhere – even without the macro – for a graphic, for example, or in the Confluence navigation, or in an entirely different application/portal. This link then opens the preconfigured iFinder Search UI in Confluence.
