You can search wikis globally across all of GitHub Enterprise Server, or search wikis within a particular repository or organization. For more information, see "About searching on GitHub."
- This article contains links to example searches on the GitHub.com website, but you can use the same search filters with GitHub Enterprise Server. In the linked example searches, replace
github.comwith the hostname for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.
- For a list of search syntaxes that you can add to any search qualifier to further improve your results, see "Understanding the search syntax".
- Use quotations around multi-word search terms. For example, if you want to search for issues with the label "In progress," you'd search for
label:"in progress". Search is not case sensitive.
To find wiki pages from all repositories owned by a certain user or organization, use the
org qualifier. To find wiki pages from a specific repository, use the
|user:defunkt matches wiki pages from repositories owned by @defunkt.|
|org:github matches wikis in repositories owned by the GitHub organization.|
|repo:defunkt/gibberish matches wiki pages from @defunkt's "gibberish" repository.|
in qualifier limits the search to the wiki page title or body text. Without the qualifier, both the title and body text are searched.
|usage in:title matches wiki page titles with the word "usage."|
|installation in:body matches wiki pages with the word "installation" in their main body text.|
updated qualifier matches wiki pages that were last updated within the specified date range.
When you search for a date, you can use greater than, less than, and range qualifiers to further filter results. For more information, see "Understanding the search syntax."
|usage updated:>2016-01-01 matches wiki pages with the word "usage" that were last updated after 2016-01-01.|
