List of undefined links doesn't work appropriate

Hello!

While looking for the easiest way to list all broken links, I found an option to list Undefined pages, or the pages that are 'not exist'. Seems like it works for the links that are 'not exist YET', but not for the links to deleted pages.

Well, let me show what I mean:

There are two links: first one was created as undefined page link, second one was a link from a page, that has been deleted recently.

They both works as undefined pages links - forward me to create a new page with the defined name. And URL for that action looks the same (except for page name, of course).

It could work perfectly for me, to find all links with deleted pages, as they act just like 'undefined pages' .

BUT I realized, that such links are not displayed in the list of those 'undefined pages':

Well, I know that initially these two links are different and they were added in different ways. But why, when the second link turns into undefined link visually and functionally, it's still a different type of link and doesn't appear in the List?

For additional

these links still looks different when I want to edit the page:

I will be happy to get any comments on my issue.
Thank you in advance!

And this one is just the same problem as mine, but haven't been solved:

@Natalia Perminova , this might be confusing because you probably haven't purged the deleted page from the trash yet. Once you do that, you will see your deleted page listed under "Undefined Pages". Confluence will keep the "memory" in case you need to restore the page from the trash, which will also restore its original link.

Hope it helps.

Yes, you're right! That really worked!

Thank you very much for your kind explanation!
