Problem with links in Confluence

Dear Atlassian,

In some cases the URL links in confluence do not work properly, e.g. this link from our internal bugzilla.

http://bugs.tabula.com/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&columnlist=product%2Ccomponent%2Cassigned_to%2Cbug_status%2Cresolution%2Ctarget_milestone%2Cshort_desc%2Cchangeddate&email1=vavinaya|mmkrtchya|nkhurshu&emailassigned_to1=1&emailtype1=regexp&known_name=jzejda%2BTarget&list_id=39892&query_format=advanced&order=assigned_to%2Ctarget_milestone%20DESC%2Cbug_id&query_based_on=jzejda%2BTarget

I attempted to fix it, but no matter how I try to add the link as a "Web Link" (it viewed as a link) it does not response mouse clicks.

Confluence version: Atlassian Confluence 4.3.7

Please help me to find the reason and figure out this problem.

Thanks in advance,

Hakob

Hi Hakob,

in your parameter-list (in the url) you have the following string: |mmkrtchya|nkhurshu&emailassigned_to1=1

The pipe symbols ( | ) are responsible, that the links will not be displayed on the wiki page.

Hope, that will help.

Cheers, Christina

Hi Christina,

I think the the issue is not connected with Pipe symbol.

I tried the following link:

http://bugs.tabula.com/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&columnlist=product%2Ccomponent%2Cassigned_to%2Cbug_status%2Cresolution%2Ctarget_milestone%2Cshort_desc%2Cchangeddate&email1=vavinaya%7Cmmkrtchya%7Cnkhurshu

Here I have changed | to %7C (to encode unsafe character) and the link also doesn't response mouse clicks.

Please note that the mentioned link is a valid one and works on my Firefox browser.

Thanks,

Hakob

Hi Hakob,

i tried your links with my 4.3.7. demo system. the link from your first post doesn't work with my system as well, but the second link works fine.

It seems, your system has some problem with url encoding. Unfortunately, i am not an expert for administrating the tomcat server and confluence :-( .

Cheers, Christina

Thahnk you Christian,

I tried again and it works for me too.

However, I think this is a Confluence bug and it will be fine to add the support of the encode unsafe characters in Confluence.

If the latest version hasn't the support of it I will fill a ticket on the new release.

Thanks,

Hakob
