For links in the body, enable Link Transformer Rewriter and test

For links in the browser's address bar, fix the rewrite rules in both apache and AEM:

1) Could you test the absolute link with 'map' feature under /system/console/jcrresolver and share the results from both prod and non-prod publish servers? -    e.g. https://www.domain.com/content/jca/en/page1.html

2) To shorten root url - http://www.domain.com/content/jca/page1.html to http://www.domain.com, implement a redirect rule in apache before pass through

RedirectMatch 301 (?i)^/(content/jca/page1.html)$ /         # This would only work for one use case only

Probably you have a valid use case for using two domains for the same content tree but that's a separate topic.

The urls are not shortened for root page or children pages?

I see two entries here for domain mapping, what about the other rule for children pages of '/content/jca'. There must be another entry in  jcrresolver or otherwise in apache redirects.

This rule would take care of shortening children pages-

^http/abc.domain.com.80/delta/(.+)$/content/jca/$1
/$1
nternal

I have '/content/jca' only .

I removed the uat1 from prod ,sling mapping still does not work. Both domains are for prod server only. But still even after removing uat1 , it didnt work.

URLs are still not shortened.

Sling Mapping will work even if Rewriting is disabled in Transformer which is why ur short url is working when u hit in browser, but updating content full urls to short urls will not work in html source. For other project its working, reason might be they have a custom rewriter written in other project which implements TransformerFactory. So you need to update setting of other custom rewriter for new project.

How is '/content/myapp' related to '/content/jca'?

Why do you have two replacement domains defined for a single pattern? I assume you have a way to control which one should be applied on what environment? If not, then that is your problem. You could remove "uat1" and test in prod or remove "www" in uat environment and test.

On jcrresolver ,i see my rules are added

In the access log ,i see the request is going for complete path .

Below are the rewrite rules ,I have in dispatcher config :

Use Case is to prevent exposing "/content/myapp/" from URLS  for SEO purpose.

Yes when i hit the shorten url ,it works . But all  urls (links on Navigation etc) on dispatcher  are not getting shortened by default .

Currently Link rewriting is disabled on publisher since in one of the other project ,it works even with disabling link rewriting

Yes Link Checker Transformer is needed to shorten your full pathfield links in html dom. But when you hit a short url urself it will work from domain by sling mapping.

do you see it configured under  '/system/console/jcrresolver ' ?

test it to make sure that it works fine

If it doesn't work on prod-publish server then you'd need to fix it

If it works fine on prod-publish server and not on dispatcher then apache redirects rules could be an issue

share the appropriate configs/use case/logs, as applicable
