Confluence server sits behind proxy.
First base_url was configured ti server ip address.
Then we changed base_url to domain address.
After this when inserting link to a page created before base_url change after saving open the link in page edit mode. Back in source page edit link edit is greyed out.
During insert the link shows as view page.
If after inserting such a link save the destination page - it opens in view mode.
As well if linking to hte page created after base_url change - everything works fine.
It sounds like you are running into behavior related to these bugs: Editing a page after changing the base URL causes all page links and @mentions to become links to the page itself and Images, attachments and user mentions in the page are broken after changing the BaseURL
In both cases, the workaround is to disable and re-enable the Collaborative editing feature. This is less than ideal because:
Please vote and/or comment on the bug reports to add weight to them. Here is our Bug Fixing Policy with more info on how we prioritize bug fixes
I realize the descriptions on the bug reports don't mention the attachment view link URL being changed to an edit URL, but they are close enough to the symptoms and situation (attachment links are not behaving as expected after base URL change) to be fixed by the same workaround.
Did you turn collaborative editing off and back on and still see the issue? If you toggled collaborative editing mode and are still seeing the issue, please let me know and I will research more.
If you haven't tried the workaround because of the shared drafts, perhaps you can reproduce the issue in a test instance, and try the workaround there, to save your users some trouble.
