redirects.cfg

redirects.cfg is used to configure global default collection redirects per hostname (e.g. https://search.company.com/). This file specifies a default collection/profile redirect that will be applied when a specific hostname is accessed.

By default all requests to the root page that do not match a specified domain redirect to the search package listing page.

This configuration can only be modified by a system administrator.
Table of Contents

Format

A text file, in the form:

redirects.cfg
domain=redirect

where:

  • domain: is the domain of the request e.g. example.com

  • redirect: is the URL path and question to redirect to e.g. /s/search.html?collection=example

Caveats:

  • Each domain can only be specified once.

  • The redirect is relative and must not contain a scheme, host or port.

Example
