Hi @[deleted]

I'll need more details to try helping you with this one.

  • Can you share what is the database type used with the specific version?
  • Please share as well the collation used and any extra DB configuration you may have manually set for the Bamboo data.

When configuring Bamboo external DB we need to follow the following document:

I'll wait for your comments.

Where do I found collation information in Bamboo?

Hi @[deleted]

I don't think Bamboo saves this information anywhere, but you can get it directly from your DB. This is one of the articles you can use (not from Atlassian though): How to Show the Collation of a Database in MySQL.

I think the issue you are facing is caused by the missing support for utf8mb4.

There is also an Atlassian article talking about a similar problem with MySQL: Branch names with emoji or 4 byte UTF8 characters create hundreds of plan branches in Bamboo.
