3212558 - Error when previewing View Published Revisions in CSB - Recruiting Marketing


When I click Preview in View Published Revisions list in a category page in Career Site Builder, I'm getting an error: HTTP Status 500 - For input string: "%20XXXXXXX"

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Career Site Builder > Pages > Category
  2. Select a category page and click Edit
  3. Open the Page Options menu and select 'View Published Revisions'

  4. Click Preview
  5. You get the error: HTTP Status 500 - For input string: "%20XXXXXXX" 


The name of the category page may contain a special character that breaks the preview URL.


In CSB go to category pages and check if your category Pages names do not contain any special character such as "/" and remove it.

After amending the page's name, the preview link should work as expected.
