Odd issue with content sidebar links breaking after a migration

I am working on migrating content from a Drupal 7 install to Confluence that we will self host. I have a working copy of Confluence on my dev machine.

 

I am migrating from a Drupal 7 content type of "post" with it's comments, into Confluence "blogpost" and the comments for each post.

 

The migration is successful for the most part. I can see posts with titles and comments. 

 

However, the issue I am having is that the Confluence content sidebar links change and I haven't been able to determine why this is occuring.

Example:

1. Run the migration, get "blogposts" in Confluence.

2. Sidebar has a list of links. You can drill down into the year, and then into the months of the year.

3. One example is I have a URL called http://confluence.localhost:8090/display/SPC/2024/03/15/Being+Agile+with+a+Deadline+And+Stuff but the source data was published on March 14. So I change the URL manually to http://confluence.localhost:8090/display/SPC/2024/03/14/Being+Agile+with+a+Deadline+And+Stuff and the page now works again.

 

HOWEVER, it's not consistent, and I can't figure out why it's occurring. Yes, totally aware it could be my code.

 

So the questions are as such:

1. Has anyone seen something similar to this before? If so, what was your fix?

2. How are the sidebar content links created?

Following up in the ether ... opening a "broken" page and saving it seems to fix the problem. It may be related to draft status in the content table, but still investigating.
