JIRA Filter is showing unfeasible results


at the moment we have an error in our confluence-environment.

We have many filter in one page and some of them works fine, but three doesn´t work.

In the preview their show me a result but in live their is nothing.

In the attachement you can find a screenshot from preview and a shot from the error.


What can I do to resolve the error?


Thanks for support.

Hi Adrian,

we had the same problem in our environment. We also had these German special characters in our status and every JQL that included these special characters worked in preview mode, but not after saving the page.

The problem in our environment was a  wrong file encoding in Confluence. We had

<sun.jnu.encoding>ANSI_X3.4-1968</sun.jnu.encoding> <file.encoding>ANSI_X3.4-1968</file.encoding>

which is totally nonsense. Don't know where that came from...

We changed it to 



 and then everything was fine.

Hope you find something similar in your environment.

Viele Grüße aus Hamburg

Great you found it :-)

Hi Thomas,

where can I find this part:

<sun.jnu.encoding>ANSI_X3.4-1968</sun.jnu.encoding> <file.encoding>ANSI_X3.4-1968</file.encoding>

In our atlassian-confluence.log -File is written this message:

fileSystemEncoding = UTF-8.

So I think that we have an other problem.

Cheers! und Grüße aus Berlin
