Example 1:

Experience A:

www.example.com/national?Product=AAA

Experience B (Redirect) - Include Current Query Parameters Unchecked:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB

URL Used:

www.example.com/national?Product=AAA&campaign=brandedtx

Expected:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB

Actual Result:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB

This works as expected. The page changed from "national" to "state" and the parameter value changed from "AAA" to "BBB"

Example 2:

Experience A:

www.example.com/national?Product=AAA

Experience B (Redirect) - Include Current Query Parameters Checked:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB

URL Used:

www.example.com/national?Product=AAA&campaign=brandedtx

Expected:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB&Product=AAA&campaign=brandedtx

Actual Result:

www.example.com/state?Product=AAA&campaign=brandedtx

This DOESN'T works as expected. The page changed from "national" to "state" but the parameter value DIDN'T change from to "BBB"

Here is how the option is currently designed to work:

Option1: Include Current Querry Parameters: Unchecked.

Result: URL1 is redirected to URL2. If URL1 had any URL parameters they are ignored.

Option2: Include Current Querry Parameters: Checked.

Result: URL1 is redirected to URL2. If URL1 had any URL parameters they are preserved.

I believe what you area looking for is a third option which does not yet exist perhaps something like this:

Option3: Merge Current Querry Parameters with final Destination Parameters: Checked.

Result: This imagined feature woudl merge the URL parameters from URL1 and URL2.

I like the idea and want to support you by voting on it so I have submitted it as a feature request here:A4T Redirect option to Merge URL1 querry params with URL2 querry params lease vote it up so that it can get more visibility.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply!

I'm not looking for a third option; I'm looking for Option 2 to work as you described:

if you look at my Example 2 where I checked "Include Current Query Parameters" it is redirecting to the correct page but not the correct parameter value:

Experience A:

www.example.com/national?Product=AAA

Experience B (Redirect) - Include Current Query Parameters Checked:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB

Expected:

www.example.com/state?Product=BBB&Product=AAA&campaign=brandedtx

Actual Result:

www.example.com/state?Product=AAA&campaign=brandedtx

Here's another example:

Example 1:

Experience A: www.example.com/products.html?ali=true

Experience B: www.example.com/products.html?adam=true

Include Current Query Parameters: Enabled

Result: Correct: www.example.com/products.html?adam=true&ali=true

Example 2:

Experience A: www.example.com/products.html?ali=true

Experience B: www.example.com/products.html?ali=false

Include Current Query Parameters: Enabled

Result: Incorrect: www.example.com/products.html?ali=true

If you are a supported user please open a ticket with Target ClientCare team by emailing: ttclientcare@adobe.com otherwise have one of your org's supported user do that so that we can take a look at the actual example in more depth. Additionally we are also available via phone at 18004970335 x3
