Changing an article URL

  • Dark

By default, articles will convert the article title into a slug and add it to your knowledge base URL.

For example, if an article title is 'This is really good content', the resulting URL would be:docs.yourcompany.com/[project version]/docs/this-is-really-good-content

You can easily change the part of the article URL inherited from the title, .../this-is-really-good-content .

Note that changing an article's title does not automatically change the article slug.

To change an article URL:

    • If you want to set up an article redirect rule, select the checkbox 'Set a redirect rule for the updated slug'
    • If you do not want to set up an article redirect rule, uncheck the checkbox 'Set a redirect rule for the updated slug'

By default, this checkbox is unchecked.

Redirect Rules
When you change the article slug, an article redirection rule confirmation prompt will ask if you want to set up a redirect rule just in case other articles might be linking to the outdated slug. Setting up a redirect rule is optional, but advised. Want to know more about redirect rules? Visit Redirecting an article URL
