What causes a link to end without a page name and just a page ID? Edited

I've stumbled across a strange issue. 

When I link to a page from 2017 in Confluence cloud the link looks like this

But other pages that are newer (created in 2020) the links look like this

The page that ends without a page name is created using the old editor. But when I imported a space from Confluence server, where the pages are edited with the old editor. I linked to one of those pages and it looks like this

I can't seem to figure out what causes some links to end up with a page name and some without.

Dear @Seth Petersson ,

it depends on an internal algorithm of Atlassian. I tries to keep the URL in a human readable form, but when certain criterias are hit, the ID is shown, only.

Afaik, you cannot influence this behavior.

Have a look at this article for a brief explenation.

So long
