Avatar

Level 3

Hi all,

 

Page : /content/home/welcome

Vanity URL : wel

 

If I enter the https://docker.demo.com/wel , The browser will redirect me to https://docker.demo.com/content/home/welcome.html.  But I want browser redirect me to the https://docker.demo.com/home/welcome.html .

 

Does anyone know how to extend Vanity to achieve this function?

 

Thanks,

Forrest

there are a couple of solutions to achieve this. 

One of the solutions is:-

1. Create a servlet in AEM to create the vanity paths present under the project hierarchy. 

2. Create a shell script in apache to hit the above AEM servlet on a periodic basis and save it in a file(vanity_urls.txt) on apache.

3. Create the re-write rules at the Apache level in httpd.conf file.

These rules will check whether the path requested exists in the file (vanity_urls.txt) and based on the result will do the shortening conditionally.

I think as @Harwinder-singh you might have to look at resource mapping.

There are many ways to achieve your requirement. If you need to redirect all pages, you might want to do that activities son Apache/Dsipacther level.

If this is for some pages only you can employ Vanity URL field on the Page Properties dialog
