How can i configure a friendly url to pages with accent in name?

Samanta Miranda Sep 24, 2015

I need to reference the url's in my system, but all the pages that contain accent in their name have a diferent url, e.g: http://help.alterdata.com.br/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4100861#.


Is there a way to configure all url's to a friendly url? (e.g: http://help.alterdata.com.br/display/AS/Requisitos)

Hi Samanta,

Actually that is correct, if any page has a special character or accent if you will, it will translate to a pageid number, that's how we designed Confluence and how it works. You could try to rename the page without the accent, otherwise we'll still have the page like that.

Cheers,

This is due to accents/special characters not being well recognized in URLs for many users. We've seen situations where simple characters like colon (":") or semicolon (";") were filtered for a user on their work computer but not on their mobile phone. I believe it's better that Atlassian optimized to provide a url which works for everyone.

Tanks @William Zanchet [Atlassian] and @Adrien Ragot (Play SQL / CYO), but i have one more question, these id's will not be affected if i work with Scroll Versions? Because i'll publish the pages in a different space.

That's an old bug which Atlassian refuses to fix despite over 350 votes.
