How to create redirects for in-product documentation?

Documentation that is linked in-product should always use a redirect from www.mattermost.com instead of the docs.mattermost.com site, to ensure links are not broken in the event that they are moved on the docs site.

To set up a redirect, you must have admin access to www.mattermost.com. Marketing can assist with this access or @jason.blais or @katie.wiersgalla can add a redirect for you.

If you have access, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the administration panel for www.mattermost.com.
  2. From the left-hand sidebar, go to SEO > Redirects.
  3. On the top of the screen, ensure you are on the Redirects - Yoast SEO page header on the Redirects tab.
  4. Under Type, choose 301 Moved Permanently option (this is the default option).
  5. In the Old url field, enter in the new direct you want to use in-product in the format of /pl/default-page-description. Update the page description with your page information.
  6. In the Url field, enter in the full URL to the page on docs.mattermost.com.
  7. Click the Add Redirect botton and verify your entry is added to the list. You may need to page through to find your entry.
  8. Test your redirect URL. This will be the URL in the format of https://www.mattermost.com/pl/default-page-description.html.
