I created a Confluence page with the following characters in the title <->. The page was created but I cannot access it. I see the following error:
Type Exception Report
Message Invalid character found in the request target. The valid characters are defined in RFC 7230 and RFC 3986
I also cannot delete it. Any suggestions on how to fix this or at least delete the page?
Try the following. A word of warning, this is my best recollection of what I did to get around the issue at the time.
I did a dummy delete of a page to see what the "delete" URl looked like. In my case, it looked as follows:
https://<my atlassian url>/wiki/pages/removepage.action?pageId=40726201185
So the trick is to find the pageIds of the offending pages and then create the appropriate URL. I think this bypasses whatever check is causing the exception
