      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Login to Confluence Cloud using a test user, or separate user from your main account.

      3. Logout, and login again as a new user (this can be your usual user.)
      4. Create or Edit a page in Confluence using the New Editor.
      5. Insert Link macro by typing /link
      6. In the search dialogue, attempt to search for the name of the new page.
      7. You will find that it only displays pages that have already been viewed.

      Actual Results

      Page name is not found, and a link is unable to be inserted.
