Add ability to search content in the multiexcerpt-include
Freshdesk Ticket #107563
one of the shortcomings of Confluence's original excerpt-include macro is
that included content is not searchable, i. e. pages containing a search
term within the excerpt-include macro do not show up in the search
results. Only the source page (the one which contains the excerpt-macro)
Has this issue been addressed with the multiexcerpt-app?
Thanks in advance and best regards

Confluence search uses the indexed Storage Format (SFXML) page markup. The MultiExcerpt Include markup does not have the included content in it, it only has a pointer to the included content. So, the MultiExcerpt Include content would not be found in a Confluence search.
It may be possible to implement a custom search tool that can search all excerpts for certain content. It would be subject to permissions of the user who is doing the search.
