You can search wikis by using search qualifiers in any combination to narrow your search results.
- This article contains example searches on the GitHub.com website, but you can use the same search filters on your GitHub Enterprise 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.
Search within a user or organization's repositories
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.|
Search within a wiki page title or body text
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.|
Search by last updated date
updated qualifier matches wiki pages that were last updated within the specified date range.
Dates support greater than, less than, and range qualifiers.
||usage updated:>2016-01-01 matches wiki pages with the word "usage" that were last updated after 2016-01-01.|
