Page redirection after page move in confluence

Senario:

Space A
Page 1 : Child-Page 01
Page 1 : Child-Page 02
Page 1 : Child-Page 03
Page 2
Page 3 : Child-Page 01
Page 3 : Child-Page 02
Page 3 : Child-Page 03
Page 4 : Child-Page 01
Page 5 : Child-Page 01

Space B :

Now given the above seanario, if the Page 3 (including child pages) are moved to Space B, When an user clicking on an link pointing to Space A : Page 3 what result should be expected.

I would like if there is any way to achieve below functionality.

When clicked on link pointing to Space A : Page 3 after the move...

1) Show that the page is not available and display an link to Space B : Page 3.

or

2) Display Space B : Page 3.

Well, if you create links to pages using the internal wiki way of doing it(as opposed to hard links to http://whatever) then moving a page should not affect anything. Any prior link will change to reflect the move as the links are not hardcoded they are generated on access.

With that said, if you actually want to maintain the old Page 3 page you will have to copy it and its children instead of moving it and once that is done remove the content from the original page 3 and add a link to the new space.

Did this answer the question?

I have landed on this page thinking the same question. Could you (or somebody) please point to the docs page which describes ‘the internal wiki way of doing it’. That’s a feature I did not know existed and would be great. I am trying to rename a knowledge base and, in the absence of being able to change a space key, the other option is to move pages from one space to another and hope the redirects are automatically implemented.
