Description

Steps to reproduce

  1. From the Alloy site > Alloy Track page, add an external link to TinyMCE:
    https://alfresco.vgregion.se/alfresco/service/vgr/storage/node/content/workspace/SpacesStore/396c30ac-53e4-433e-bd26-6ed4b8e63c83/Bild%20Samarbetsorganisationen.pdf?a=false&guest=true
  2. Save and publish it.

Expected: Link validation reports no issues.
Actual: After we run the Link Validation job, the Link Status report reports this link as broken.
