I am trying to redirect account creation to account sign in. I create customer accounts in admin panel instead. However attempting to redirect using Magento's URL Rewrite module is not working for me.

  • URL Rewrite: Custom
  • Store: Default store view
  • Request path: customer/account/create
  • Target path: customer/account/login
  • Redirect Type: Permanent(301)

Upon clicking "create account" in the store, it doesn't redirect to sign in page.

I am using Google Chrome and also tried with Safari. I have cleared my browser cache, reindexed and cached Magento but to no avail.

Here's a photo of my configuration:

It is no longer possible in Magento to overwrite controller routes with url rewrites. In routers list sort order for Magento\Framework\App\Router\Base is 10 and for Magento\UrlRewrite\Controller\Router sort order is 40.


I was not able to redirect using Magento Admin Panel but instead, I included this line in .htaccess in root magento directory:

RewriteRule customer/account/create http://example.com/customer/account/login [L,R=301].
