Supercharge search with macros

Confluence makes it easy for teammates to quickly find anything they’re searching for.

  • The live search macro adds a fully customizable search field to any page. When you start typing, Confluence suggests matching pages, blogs, or comments just like a search engine. Limit the search by space, label, and content type, and choose a snippet to show in results. Type /live search to get started.
  • The spaces list macro lets you display all the spaces you want to highlight. Set the parameters to show results from all your spaces, spaces with a certain label, favorites, or the most recent. Type /spaces list to get started.
  • The recently updated macro lets you get alerts on all changes to your space and see all new pages, blogs, files, and comments. It's perfect for project landing or information pages and team space home pages. Set the macro’s parameters to filter for authors, spaces, labels, and content type. Type /recently updated to get started.
  • The page tree macro display alls or part of the page hierarchy within a space. It provides quick and easy navigation and an overview of content in documentation spaces. Set the parameters to sort pages by certain criteria, reverse the order, include excerpts, and more. Type /page tree to get started.
  • The page tree search macro lets you find pages in a specific page hierarchy. It’s useful for searches within one section of the current space, such as a knowledge base or specific part of a page hierarchy like one project in a space that contains multiple projects. Type /page tree search to get started.
  • The page index macro lets you see all your space’s pages organized alphabetically. This is helpful for project pages, knowledge base articles, and process and procedure pages in Confluence. Type /page index to get started.
