Opened 3 years ago? Is this still an issue? Innovation Norway would like this added to their new www.innovasjonnorge.no site. Has anyone created it?

Nope, this has not been done yet. It would have been nice to have, but requires the list of redirects to be moved away from the config file.

Should not be a big job, and I'd rather have this put inside a database (preferable the EPiServer database.) With EPiServer CMS 6, the Dynamic Data Store could be used.

I'd estimate the job to take about a day, give or take. It is not a huge job, but the following requirements make things more complex:

  • The redirects should be cached in case of DOS attacks or a crawler with a large list of invalid urls visits the site.
  • If the list is changed, all servers in a web farm must be notified (the Event System can be used for this)
  • Some customers have disabled insert/update/delete on the database, which requires store procedures for all data access

  • Status changed from assigned to closed

This has been implemented and quite a while ago. Pretty sure we can close this now.
