Vanity URL and Sling Mapping

Anwar_Sadat
Level 2

I have a few vanity URLs set through the page properties. I have enabled the Dispatchers to recognize the vanity URLs through the /vanity_urls settings in the dispatcher.any.

But the vanity URLs are not resolved because I have a set of sling mappings for different sites:

And this is the one that has the vanity URL mapped to one of its pages:

<sitea.mydomain.com.80 jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2015-07-21T13:03:59.628+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/content/sitea/home" >
<apps jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2015-07-21T13:03:59.630+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/apps"/>
<content jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2015-07-21T13:03:59.632+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/content"/>
<etc jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2015-07-21T13:03:59.633+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/etc"/>
<homepage jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2015-07-21T13:03:59.637+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/content/sitea/home.html" sling:match="$"/>
<bin jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2016-05-26T12:11:58.468+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/bin"/>
<libs jcr:primaryType="sling:Mapping" jcr:created="2015-07-21T13:03:59.635+08:00" jcr:createdBy="admin" sling:internalRedirect="/libs"/>
</sitea.mydomain.com.80>

Now if I remove the above mapping, the redirect works. If I have it, it does not work.

Is there anything that I need to do the sling mapping to make the vanity redirect work?

Hi Anwar,

You should enable "Vanity Path Precedence"  in Apache sling resource resolver factory" From OSGi configuration console. It will ensure your vanity URLs are cosnidered first before the sling mapping.

I would suggest to handle this on Apache server level. You long URL will be re-direct to vanity URL using 301 redirection. 

 

Let me know if you know further details on this .
