Set the current space with the $spacekey Text Variable.

Using Atlassians Confluence Query language CQL you can adjust the result in your search to whatever you want it to, whether it is a date stamp, a content search or extending the search to include specific spaces. 


Do a complete content search using the CQL: text ~"*$query*"

Do a complete content search on the space using the CQL: text ~"*$query*" and space.key=$spacekey


Search confluence for users

siteSearch ~ "$query*" and type = user

Search my mentions

siteSearch ~ "$query*" and mention = currentUser()


Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output.
