Redirecting an outbound url in Sharepoint online

Amit Dimri 31 Reputation points

Hi all,

I have one sceanrio in SahrePoint online where the documents migratd to SPO still contains the link to On-premise search center.

Post migration, we want the links to be reirected to the SharePoint Online search center.

We discussed two cases.

  1. Edit each document through some automated scripts before migration and update the search link to SPO(not the best idea as there are almost 2 million documents in On-premise)
  2. Try to implement a gateway which will redirect the request (headed towards on-premise search center) to the SPO search center.

Can someone please advise if you have come across such scenario or redirecting a request is possible in Sharepoint Online?

    Hi @Amit Dimri

    Per my knowledge, redirecting links to local search centers is not possible in Sharepoint Online.

    Unfortunately, you may need to follow the first approach: Edit each document through some automated scripts to achieve your needs.

    Thank you for your understanding and support.

    In addition, I found a thread for you that is similar to your needs, you can check it out:
