I am migrating a store from an old custom commerce system to Magento 2. I am trying to add URL rewrites into Magento 2 using the Marketing -> Url Rewrite tool.

The old URLs for the store look like this:


I can enter that into the Request Path just fine, but anything with a ? in it never actually forwards to the Target Path. If I remove the ?, it redirects fine.. but obviously that is not a valid URL.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Magento 2 reads parameters in the following format: somepage/param/param_value/

It ignores the question mark. In your situation you have 2 options to go:

1) Manage this by using the rewrite rules of the webserver.

For more information on this, please check:

2) Write your custom router for processing URLs

Please see my example on how to do this there: Configure front name in admin panel

  • I was trying to avoid this route, but it looks easier to put them in nginx than it does to create a new url processor.

You can create a module which works the same as a htaccess rewrite rule. After two days trying to get htaccess rewrite to work I found this works perfectly for Magento 2.4: https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/158811/109113
