Adding following content-param in web.xml will translate the externalId URL to prettyURL for 11.1.1.6.5 to 11.1.1.8.x WebCenter version.

<context-param>
  <param-name>oracle.webcenter.navigationframework.TRANSLATE_EXTERNAL_ID_TO_PRETTY_URL</param-name>
  <param-value>true</param-value>
</context-param>
