This page is intended for developers and advanced users of Confluence. It gives an overview of the Apache Lucene search fields used in Confluence.

On this page:

Searching for Content in Specific Fields

Confluence data is stored in fields which can be specified in the search. To search a specific field, type the name of the field followed by a colon ':' and then the term you are looking for.

Examples:

title:"Some Title"
labelText:chalk

The field specification applies only to the term directly preceding the colon. For example, the query below will look for "Some" in the title field and will search for "Heading" in the default fields.

title:Some Heading
