Can I customize a URL to a page within Confluence?


As we go to using Confluence for documentation for our general user base, I've run into something that seems either like I'm unique or just not asking the question the right way, so I apologize if this has been answered already.

The question is this: we'd like to have a more friendly way to refer users to particular pages in Confluence from external sources.  So, for example, our confluence being at and we have our outages page which is at /display/OPS/Current+Outages what I'm looking for is some way of generating a URL like - which we can include in documentation, and presumably hides the internal processing of the service as much as possible.  I know I can do this with redirects in Apache, but it seemed obvious that someone else would have answered this question if there's a better way to do it.

This wouldn't be used very often, it's just that for those viewing URLs it seems easier to remember (or identify from browser history) than the /display path.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Thanks, Steve!  That isn't what I was hoping to hear, but I guess the idea of a URL as containing information that end-users might understand isn't all that popular.
