content-store: # Redirect items

Redirect items

To represent content that can be found under a different base_path, the content store will support items with a format of "redirect". These items have slightly different rules:

  • They must include a redirect for the base_path in their redirects array. They may additionally include other paths under the base_path.
  • The routes array and rendering_app will be ignored, and should be left empty.
  • A title is not required.

For example, given the following request:

PUT /content/moved-foo
{
  "format": "redirect",
  "publishing_app": "publisher",
  "redirects": [
    {"path": "/moved-foo", "type": "prefix", "destination": "/new-foo"},
    {"path": "/moved-foo.json", "type": "exact", "destination": "/api/moved-foo.json"}
  ]
}

The following redirects would be created:

/moved-foo (prefix) => /new-foo
/moved-foo.json (exact) => /api/moved-foo.json
