I am trying to redirect from observer but it does passing in Magento marketplace validations.


  1. $this->redirect->setRedirect($customRedirectionUrl);

  2. $this->_response->create()->setRedirect($url)->sendResponse(); $this->_messageManager->addError($message);

  3. $this->_responseFactory->create()->setRedirect($url)->sendResponse();

I need a redirect method which does not depend on exit and die because magento does not allow that.

The codes you have mentioned in question do redirect effectively. Since Magento is not allowing to use redirect methods depending upon exit and die I had search for such methods which are already being used in magento core's observer for redirect purpose.

I have found few of them which I'm going to list:

1. Magento\Captcha\Observer\CheckForgotpasswordObserver.php

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface $redirect,
) {
    $this->redirect = $redirect;

 * Check Captcha On Forgot Password Page
 * @param \Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer
 * @return $this
public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
    $formId = 'user_forgotpassword';
    $captchaModel = $this->_helper->getCaptcha($formId);
    if ($captchaModel->isRequired()) {
        /** @var \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action $controller */
        $controller = $observer->getControllerAction();
        if (!$captchaModel->isCorrect($this->captchaStringResolver->resolve($controller->getRequest(), $formId))) {
            $this->messageManager->addError(__('Incorrect CAPTCHA'));
            $this->_actionFlag->set('', \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action::FLAG_NO_DISPATCH, true);
            $this->redirect->redirect($controller->getResponse(), '*/*/forgotpassword');

    return $this;

Since it is included in core file I think this could be the one that can be used.

2. You may see the same method is used in Magento\Captcha\Observer\CheckContactUsFormObserver and module-captcha/Observer/CheckUserEditObserver.php as well.

You can get code from the below file path


Here you can see the processError() method where the whole redirect code is written. you can follow the same code in your custom file. below is a sample of how to add the same code in your Observer file.


namespace VendorName\ModuleName\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\UrlInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\ActionFlag;

class ObserverClassName implements ObserverInterface
    protected $_urlInterface;
    protected $actionFlag;

    public function __construct(
        UrlInterface $urlInterface,
        ActionFlag $actionFlag
    ) {
        $this->_urlInterface = $urlInterface;
        $this->actionFlag = $actionFlag;

    public function execute(Observer $observer)
        $customRedirectionUrl = $this->_urlInterface->getUrl('YourPath'); // Like cms/page/index
        $this->actionFlag->set('', \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action::FLAG_NO_DISPATCH, true);
        $controller = $observer->getControllerAction();
        $response = $controller->getResponse();
        return $response->setRedirect($customRedirectionUrl);

Note: In the core where this code is working. They are used controller_action_predispatch event. you can check ReCaptcha related core modules in a vendor.
