Truncating your url_rewrite table & run re-indexing.

It will create all url-key's automatically.

=> Note : Take backup of that table before truncate it.

For regenerate url :

Download this module and copy the Iazel directory into app/code/

Then you can regenerate SEO Friendly URL's for catalog/products via Console

# Regenerate url for all products and the global store
php bin/magento iazel:regenurl

# Regenerate url for products with id (1, 2, 3, 4) for store 1
php bin/magento iazel:regenurl -s1 1 2 3 4

That's known issue in Magento2.1.x

this issue is solved now magento2.2

you can check here for more detail


for quick hack you can do following

Create a prefrence of this class vendor/magento/module-url-rewrite/Model/Storage/DbStorage.php

and rewrite doReplace() this method

protected function doReplace($urls)
    foreach ($this->createFilterDataBasedOnUrls($urls) as $type => $urlData) {
    $urlData[UrlRewrite::ENTITY_TYPE] = $type;
    $data = [];
    foreach ($urls as $url) {
    $data[] = $url->toArray();

     /* Add this line : Get rid of rewrite for root Magento category to unduplicate things*/
    foreach($data as $key =>$info){
        if(isset($info['target_path']) && stristr($info['target_path'],'/category/1') && $info['entity_type']=='product'){

  • I tried your method but unfortunately, it's not working on my end. Thanks anyway. May 30, 2018 at 5:23
