On my Magento 2.2.3 store, I'm adding new categories. But it seems that on all new, but also the old existing categories. I'm unable to change the URL Key under the 'Search Engine optimization' tab.

The URL is shown, but it's greyed out and the input field is disabled. my website has 4 stores.

Anyone can suggest this. I am not getting any solution.

After lots of R&D and step by step debug in the code I have found the solution. It was the Plazma theme module issue. in the file view/adminhtml/ui_component/category_form.xml I have found the code below and I have commented this.

<item name="imports" xsi:type="array">
 <item name="disabled" xsi:type="string">${ $.provider }:data.use_default.url_key</item>

Now everything working fine.

There are ways you can try to debug this issue:

  1. Check if you are editing the category for the specific Store View
  2. Go to Store→Configuration→Catalog→Catalog→Search Engine Optimization and check if Create Permanent Redirect for URLs if URL Key Changed is set to YES
  • I have already checked both ways and all are set as you said. category URL is also not editable with store view also
