Deleting a Page : Need an option to update Link references of the deleted page



Request for Feature Enhancement (RFE) Summary: Deleting a Page : Need an option to update Link references of the deleted page

 Content author Deleting a page.

Current/Experienced Behavior: When content author deletes a page from AEM then the deleted page link references don't get removed in the Site core and There is no option to redirect the references to a new page or completely delete the references(hyperlinks).
Improved/Expected Behavior:

 When we try to delete a page then it gives us the three options

·         link to another item (if the page being deleted has been                     hyperlinked somewhere then it will redirect the deleting                page URL to new location before deleting)

·         To remove the references if the page is hyperlinked                        anywhere on the site

·         Leave links – the links will appear in the Broken Links report

Environment Details (AEM version/service pack, any other specifics if applicable):

 AEM 6.5

Thanks for proposing this idea

This has been reported to the engineering under the internal reference SITES-11209. The product team will triage this request to verify feasibility based on the prioritization model. This post will be updated according to the Jira request status.

Status changed to: Investigating




Thank you for the enhancement request. While this works in AEM today, visually, via link icon in RTE that appears broken if a reference i deleted - it is acknowledged that a UI to guide a user through adjusting such references would be very useful. It is in the backlog for future releases, timing TBD.
