Find work faster with the new Confluence search

We know how important it is to quickly find the right content in Confluence to get work done. In this release, we've introduced a new search experience, making it easier to search, filter and find the information you need to keep work moving forward.

Search for anything

The previous quick navigation feature restricted your search to titles, displaying a limited set of results based on the name of the page, file, space or user.

Based on your feedback, we’ve changed this in the new Confluence search, replacing quick navigation with an expanded search view displaying more results. As you type, Confluence now performs a full search of your site content, so you're more likely to find a match first go.

Quickly refine results with filters

We've also added interactive search filters, so you can easily narrow down your results in a few clicks. Search within a particular space, find content a teammate worked on, or limit your results to a specific content type or time frame. 

You can also use the existing Confluence search syntax, like wildcards and other operators, for more precise search queries. Head to our updated search guide for the full overview.

Massive editor improvements

When an editing experience is smooth and trouble-free you hardly notice it. So we're really hoping you notice nothing at all about our new upgraded editor.

We've made a huge number of improvements, including solving common frustrations relating to table cells, bullet points, and cursor behaviour, especially when copying and pasting content. The look of the editor hasn't changed, the improvements are all under the hood.

Why not give our upgraded editor a try. Side effects include getting work done, and an overwhelming sense of calm.

More ways to edit files

In 6.11, we introduced an easier way to update attached files, allowing you to edit the file in its native desktop application, then seamlessly save the changes back to Confluence.

The edit feature was previously only available if you opened the file in preview first. We've now added the edit option to the attachments page, Attachments macro and View File macros (1), so you can update files with fewer clicks.

Delete profile picture

Administrators can now delete a user's profile picture. This will delete both their current profile picture, and any others they may have uploaded in the past.

Simply search for the user then hit Delete Profile Picture.

Number your PDFs the easy way

When you export a space to PDF you can now choose to add page numbers with just one click. Numbers will be be placed in the centre of the footer on the PDF file.

Change to bundled Java vendor

From Confluence 6.14.1 onwards we bundle the AdoptOpenJDK JRE rather than the Oracle JRE. This change will only impact people who run Confluence using the bundled JRE (which is available when you install using the installer).

Both Oracle and AdoptOpenJDK are supported, so if you would prefer to use the Oracle JRE, see Change the Java vendor or version Confluence uses.
