How to link to a heading from external application

Mario Blasi July 28, 2021

Hi,

I am new to confluence an trying to get links to specific headings working (could not find a proper answer to my question so far).

Let's say I have a link to a heading:

https://myurl/wiki/spaces/DI/pages/1026129921/F+rderantrag#Umsetzung

Whe I paste this link into MS Word or MS Project for example, my browser opens:

https://id.atlassian.com/login?continue=https%3A%2F%2Fmyurl%2Flogin%3FredirectCount%3D1%26dest-url%3D%252Fwiki%252Fspaces%252FDI%252Fpages%252F1026129921%252FF%2520rderantrag%26application%3Dconfluence&application=confluence#Umsetzung

As I am already logged in to confluence, my browser redirects to the correct page, but not to the specific heading. (#Umsetzung) gets cut off and the resulting URL in the adress bar is:

https://vrn4dmo.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/DI/pages/1026129921/F+rderantrag

What am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

Thanks.

This behavior seems unusual because the link you get after pasting it in MS Word seems to be similar to the one you get as if you were logged out of Confluence.

I just tried to do something similar, but I got it right. Maybe contacting your system admin could help you with this? I'm sorry I cannot give you a proper answer. Good luck!
