Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage doesn't work?

Following the instructions here:


I'm trying to setup a static page for my a team with workspace id `nist_microcal`, so I created the repo and push an `index.html` file. Then I went to and I get a `Bad Request (400)`. If I instead go  I get `Repository not found`. This suggets that for workspace ids that contain an underscore, it may not be possible to host a static site? Is there some workaround?

Hello @oneilg ,

Welcome to the Community!

As mentioned in the document you linked, underscores can't be used for static site feature as they are not allowed in DNS hostnames:

  • Cannot use special characters: underscores are not allowed in DNS hostnames.

So yeah, the simplest workaround is to change your workspace ID and repository name to contain a hyphen or just nothing instead of the underscore.

Hope this helps.
