I have confusion in URL REWRITE Management. Can you please anyone explain it?

If url = www.domain.com/all-category/boys-toys/action-toy-figures.html it redirects to www.domain.com/action-toy-figures.html

I used custom but I can't understand that field section. Can you please explain it to me?

  • Where i add old url ? where i add new url ? and what is id path? what is redirect? – Magento 2 Sep 30 '15 at 11:32

Type *

Is it a redirect for a product, category or something else.

ID Path *

Some unique identifier (inside the store?). So you can find your redirect)

Request Path *

The path the customer requests

Target Path *

The path you want the customer to see


Do you want to make a HTTP redirect (301/302) or redirect internally, which means, no redirect is made, but the controller/router is transfering the request to the other controller

Description no clue, I don't think it is anything important - it is just a description

Hope this answers the question?

Update: Following this logic, for this example:

  • old url www.domain.com/all-category/boys-toys/action-toy-figures.html
  • i want to redirct to this www.domain.com/action-toy-figures.html

You need these settings:

  • Request Path: all-category/boys-toys/action-toy-figures.html
  • Target Path: action-toy-figures.html

Works for me:
