Fulltextsearch for Wiki
It seems like the wiki content is not searchable with the global search
A wiki you cannot search for entries is useless...
Thanks for raising this! We agree and we’re looking into this straight away. Thanks for your patience and stay tuned.
Is there an update about this topic. "Working on it" since May 2017... Wiki is not useful without strong search possibilities.
Wiki without search... really?! I don't understand this kind of strategy. Hopefully you'll prioritize this.
For the past 2 months people have been asking for updates @Suphatra. How are we looking on this feature. It's literally useless until this is updated. I don't even want to start building wikis until I know I can search them.

We have no patience, and never had.
Why no update of the feature?
Is it user voice to be heard or just customers talking each other?
What is the status of MS Teams wiki search? This is the only missing feature blocking us to migrate content to this platform.
Any more idea when this might be added?
A must have to start using wiki. Wiki helps organize stuff like evernote with a context here but with no search its dead, as free form text without search is unusable after few days.
Hi Suphatra, is there any update on this?
I'm sure the team is busy finishing up external access, but this is the most important feature for my team. I have a current project on hold until the full text search within Wiki/OneNote tab is implemented.
Thanks in advance!

Any ETA on when the search might be released? This is a must have feature. I am kicking off a large project and was going to use running the project through teams with the wiki to drive adoption. Not practical without search. Despite other limitations, the lack of search is the only thing preventing me from using Teams.
The idea that it was even introduced without it also casts a lot of doubts into the foresight of the development roadmap, but that's another story.
Hi @Suphatra, How's search in Team Wiki's coming along?
It needs to be searchable like Google. So synonyms are also found. We have added a lot of data in Microsoft teams, but when searching e.g. for Photoinitiator or Photoinitiators as the plural form, it only finds one or the other.

Please make sure Delve can search it too.
subject line says it all.

+1. Search is a must have feature
Is this currently being reviewed by the Teams Engineers?
@Andi B - Great catch. Thanks for posting. It at least makes the content discoverable in S&C Center

@Anonymous: I figured out a workaround for Security and Compliance Search (eDiscovery):
The Wiki is stored in Sharepoint. You reach the Wiki if you click “Open in Sharepoint” in the breadcrumb-menu next to your channel name in the upper middle of teams.
From there you are directed to the Sharepoint space for the team. There you need to click “Sites” on the left side menu. You will find one List for each channel in the Recents on the left side. If not, you maybe need to turn over to “Classic view” in the lower left side.
In “Page” element you will find the topic of the Wiki. In “Section” element you will find the content of the Wiki.
To enable this Wiki for Content-Search in compliance (eDiscovery) you need to click “List” in the Ribbon Menu and select List Setting (3rd from right side in ribbon menu).
There you select “List name, description and navigation” and click Yes in Navigation - “Display this list on the Quick Launch?”. Then click Save.
Now you need to wait a moment, the content will be crawled by content search.
Not being able to discover and extract this content through the Security & Compliance Center is a big issue for us.

In my mind, a wiki that is not searchable is not worth investing time in building. If this was searchable, our company would most likely use this app at an enterprise level and potentially in Teams.
I would almost say, this is a bug. A knowledge base without a search option!?
