We currently have the problem that someone created a page and by mistake somehow entered a "tab" symbol in the page name. Now the page is published and we are unable to access the page again. When we try to view page we get the notification: "Bad request - Invalid URL" HTTP Error 400, The Request URL is invalid.
Looking for a troubleshooting solution I found the following information: https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/bad-request-invalid-url-when-loading-page-722144482.html
However, I have troubles to get the Id, since in Confluence 6.7 as soon as you click on edit, it's not editpage.action.....anymore but it is /resumedraft.action?draftId=<darft-id>draftShareId=<draft shared number>
Has someone an idea where to get this numbers from? Is there any possibility to access the page again?
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
if you know the page id, you don't need the draft and share-ids.
Do you see the link to the page e.g. in the page tree? Then you can click with the right-mouse-button on the link and copy the url to the clipboard.
Then paste the link in a new browser window, and change "viewpage" to "editpage".
Thank you very much for your quick reply!
I already tried to do that, but it doesn't work. When I copy the link from the page tree I just get https://jira.alicona.com/confluence/display/<SPACEKEY>/<PAGENAME>
If I try to use the option/version from the link I shared above, which would be <baseURL>/pages/editpage.action?pageId=<PAGEID_FROM_QUERY>, I need a page ID, which I don't have.
So, somehow this option doesn't seem to work for me :(
@Claudia Auer-Berger Please try a SQL select statement on your database to get the pageid.
A little research on my Confluence 6.7 database revealed that the pageid column is null for the PAGE content type in the database. So you have to use the contentid as page ID for the latest version. To see all the versions, please try this SQL:
select contentid, version, title from content where contenttype = 'PAGE' and title like %<PAGE_TITLE>%;
Then use the contentid for the highest version as the pageId in the URL:
I look forward to hearing how it goes.
