Something went wrong

Tuesday 28 April 2020

Another grumble about Atlassian’s Confluence. This time it’s the result of trying to view a page that requires authentication when you’re not already logged in to Confluence. Look at the state of this:

Confluence obviously knows I’m not logged in, and it definitely knows the page is restricted - it says so right there on the right. So what’s with all the angry messages and red warning icons?

If you hit the little login icon at the bottom left (yep, that’s how you get to a login page from here) and sign in, the bloody thing does take you to the right page as well! It knows what I wanted all along, just forced this this hostile page on you first.
