Manage advanced redirects

The Advanced tab offers more granular control over the redirect being authored. Each main data point selection uncovers with additional configuration options to ensure the desired outcome.

ConfigurationControlDefaultOptions
Project map nodeSelect a nodeFalseMust match domain: Protocol and domain are taken into account for incoming requests. Any requests that don't match the domain defined in the source will never be matched. This is useful when setting up specific redirects for a pre-production environment that are only executed on a particular domain but not production.
URLText fieldEnter the absolute or relative path for the source URL.
Common configuration optionCheck boxTrueRetain query string from incoming request: Retains the incoming request's query string parameters to be applied to the target. It's useful to pass along things like Google Tag Manager campaign parameters to a new location. Set this to false if you wish to disregard any query string parameters on the user's request with the intent to rewrite them with new parameters from the target.
