When publishing to a remote Confluence, permalink is used as a page title

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a space with initial version in Source (Duplicate Pagetitles feature is activated)

  2. Create a new page in initial version with page title "Page A"

  3. Edit the page, change the page title to "Page A Plus" (permalink remains as "Page A")

  4. Create a new space in Target

  5. Publish the space to existing space in Target

  6. Go to the published space in Target

Expected result:
A page has a page title "Page A Plus"

Actual result:
A page has a page title "Page A"

Additional notes:

  • The issue is not reproducible with Scroll Versions and Remote Endpoint 3.2.3 on Confluence 5.9 and 5.10.

Workaround A:
If Target has Scroll Versions installed, you can use this workaround.

  1. After step #4 open the created space → Space Tools → Space Add-ons

  2. Go to Advanced Settings → click on Manage Settings → enabled Duplicate Pagetitles → click Save

  3. Click on Manage Settings again → disabled Duplicate Pagetitles → click Save

  4. Publish to this existing space

Workaround B:

  • De-activate duplicate pagetitle handling in authoring space

Environment

Confluence 5.9.10 — Source
Confluence 5.10.8 — Target
or
Confluence 6.1 — Source
Confluence 6.0.6 — Target

This is the expected behaviour. The "permalink" defines the Confluence page title and is used in the URL (if it is displayable, e.g. /display/TARGET/Page+A).

There used to be a bug that would make Scroll Versions think that a language was defined in a space during publishing and that lead to the incorrect naming of pages in a published space (regardless if using publishing within a Confluence or Remote Publishing). This bug only occurred when the publish was started from the Scroll Content Management bar (not from the space tools) was fixed in 3.3.2 https://k15t.jira.com/browse/VSN-3154.
