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...

+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!?

Totally agree! Being able to search the Wiki content is a must! I did notice that Team conversations are searchable through Delve etc, but the Wiki is not. BTW, where on earth is the wiki stored? I could not find it in the Team site under Site Assets or as an app...

Scott, I had the same task with moving existing OneNote KB into Teams. Me and team decided to use OneNote application to make the search, didn't find another way. If we can have this search in Teams that will be awesome!
This will really help company wide adoption for us. searchability seems like a basic necessity of any wiki.

+1. There a lot of stuff that should be implemented for wiki. This is one of MUST.

1 up from me, would seem common sense to include search.
I agree, please implement this as soon as possible!
I am trying to move an existing OneNote Knowledgebase into Teams to help encourage adoption within my, but full text search within the Wiki or OneNote tab is absolutely a must for us.
