Forcing file indexing in a repository

Searching for some simple terms in one of my repositories does not show all matching results, I think this is because not all of the files have been indexed. Is there any way to force GitHub to index all of the files in a repository in order to yield all matching results in a search?

Hi c99zealot! :wave:

I’m afraid it’s not possible to force an index of all of your files. There are a few limitations on what gets indexed, detailed here:
