Im working on a project that has multiple markets and AEM is our CMS. Wanted to know if we can use same vanity urls for same page across different markets.

I know vanity url in AEM does not allow duplicates within a single instance. But has anyone seen a work around that would facilitate the same.

To be more specific :

Market1 / Page1 : vanityURL1

Market1/Page2 : vanityURL1 ( should not be allowed )

Market2/ Page1 : vanityURL1 ( should be allowed )

Thank you .

The vanity URLs are global and is not tenant-aware. If you have such a tenant-based system, vanity urls cause more problems than they solve 😞

Are there specific steps to create and validate duplicate vanity urls -

Scenario : if the content author enters a  duplicate vanity url provide an alert message .

That is hardly possible without fully working out the definition of "tenant", which should be better "domain" in this aspect. I am not aware of any work in this area.

But vanity URLs are a concept of Sling, so my idea is that this question can be answered there as well.

HTH,
