How to apply redirection on all pages on a space?

Hi All

Ihave recently migrated a confluence space from Server A to B.

I want to be able to get users to automatically get redirected from all pages on the migrated space on Server A to Server B.

I am aware of the redirection plugin but you have to apply it on each and every page manually.

Are there any easier options? Plugins? workarounds?

Hey Rahul,

I'm not sure of a plugin that would easily allow this, but it is something you could accomplish using JavaScript. The following will redirect any users accessing a page on the specified space on Server A to the same page on Server B. You will want to paste the following into the 'At the end of the HEAD' section of the Custom HTML section of the Confluence Administration screen. 

<script type="text/javascript">
	function Redirect(newUrl, path) {
		window.location = newUrl + path;
	}
	space = "TEST";
	if (space == AJS.params.spaceKey) {
		var newUrl = "http://new.confluence.com"
		var path = window.location.pathname;
		Redirect(newUrl, path);
	}
</script>

If you would prefer to warn users, you could use an Alert and set a timeout like below:

<script type="text/javascript">
	function Redirect(newUrl, path) {
		window.location = newUrl + path;
	}
	space = "TEST";
	if (space == AJS.params.spaceKey) {
		var newUrl = "http://new.confluence.com"
		var path = window.location.pathname;
		alert("You will be redirected to the new page location in 3 seconds.");
		setTimeout('Redirect(newUrl, path)', 3000);
	}
</script>

To use this, simply edit 'space' to the space key of the space you want this to run in. Also, set the newUrl variable to the hostname of the new Confluence server.

This is awesome. I couldn't get the variation with the Alert to work, but version 1 solved a huge issue I had. Thank you!
