When creating a document in Confluence Cloud, one of the URL links, which points to a GitHub query result, is not being saved. I suspect that it's too long, because a bitly link in the same spot works (and correctly redirects).
I've searched and am unable to find a way to adjust the max length of the link field in the Confluence DB (in fact, I can't find how to do any edits to the Confluence db config).
So two questions:
1. How likely is it that the URL length is the problem? (other links are working and it is a valid URL that works when brought in as a bitly link)
2. How can I fix that and/or edit the DB config?
Hi Karen, allow me to reply to your questions separately:
1. I've tried reproducing this issue myself in my Confluence Cloud site, and after entering a long url I could save the page fine. Can you let me know your site name and affected page so I can have a look? (If you don't want to share this information publicly in the Community, you can submit a ticket at support.atlassian.com :) )
2. Confluence Cloud users don't have access to the database, as that's a restricted function in Cloud so you won't be able to edit the DB config. If you'd like to have access to the database, you'll need to opt for Confluence Server.
