If a create a user with a backslash in the name, for example 'thisisau\sername', clicking the name in the top-right of the header takes me to a 404 page, trying to get to https://server:8080/user/thisisau/sername/.
If I replace the '/' in the URL username with '%5C' (encoded backslash) it successfully loads the user page.
JENKINS-32623 Incorrect user URL for users with backslashes in name
Sorry, got the version number wrong - I've just updated it. The Jenkins installer was downloaded earlier today so I assume it's the latest stable version. Thanks
I'm sure this is a dupe of something... or something changed (the original bug and got replaced by this)
teilo I haven't raised this before, I only made an account to raise this issue. I briefly checked for duplicates but couldn't find anything similar
danielbeck reproduced on 2.73.3 (java -jar jenkins.war --httpListenAddress=127.0.0.1)
The dupe is
JENKINS-33304 - but that has now been closed and so was probably an incomplete fix.
OK so likely a dupe of
JENKINS-32623 which daniel has fixed and should be in the next LTS.
On OS X both forward slash and back slash work in user IDs, so this is probably specific to Windows.
teilo Are you able to reproduce this issue?
