AEM SPA | URL shortening

Avatar

Level 1

Hey

Its is possible to have URL shortening in a react SPA?

Do I need to active some configuration or do something in the dispatcher?

The best practice is to shorten (rewrite) URL at a dispatcher /HTTPD level.

Hi Sandrateixeira,

Currently, it is a known limitation that AEM SPA Editor does not have the ability to perform URL shortening -- refer to [1].  I did not find a timeline/roadmap for the implementation of this feature, however, if it is released, the SPA documentation will be updated accordingly.

Regards,

Seems like a pretty important use case that should have been covered.

Is there any update on this? If we can do URL shortening with AEM SPA editor using dispatcher rewrite rule?

When you own the model classes, you can implement logic to rewrite the repository paths accordingly. Should not be a big problem, and much safer than a heuristic provided by AEM itself (like the link rewriter).
