Description

2 years ago
For the Lithium migration we will be migrating current list of In Product Redirects (IPR) via Apache htaccess redirects.

In bug 1325046 there's discussion about the possibility of a special Lithium customization to mimic the "redirects" Kitsune app behavior which serves IPR today.

The redirects listed in the previous comment work as expected except from the following:

 The following redirects are 404s (or redirects to /) on both Kitsune and Lithium. Since they are already implemented they can be left there for the migration and get cleaned-up with the rest when bug 1325046 gets resolved.

  1/*/*/iPhone/*/install -> kb/How to set up Firefox Home 
  1/mobile/*/*/*/launcher -> kb/find-and-organize-apps-firefox-launcher 
  1/firefox/*/*/*/shumway -> /kb/shumway-watch-videos-without-flash 
  1/firefox/*/*/*/hello-tiles -> tiles-firefox-hello 
  1/mobile/*/*/*/kids -> kb/firefox-android-kids 
  1/firefox-os/*/*/*/tracking-protection -> kb/tracking-protection 
  1/firefox-os/*/*/*/control-center -> kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox-os 
  1/firefox/*/*/*/runtime -> kb/runtime-disabled 
  1/firefox/*/*/*/storage-permissions -> kb/permission-store-data 

 
 The following redirects redirect to '/' on Lithium while they should redirect to a special page which lists the popular articles under the android section:

  1/mobile/*/*/*/firefox-help -> products/mobile/popular-articles-android 
  1/mobile/*/*/*/faq -> products/mobile/popular-articles-android 
  1/mobile/*/*/*/ -> products/mobile/popular-articles-android  


 The following redirect return a 404 on Lithium and not on Kitsune but they are implemented. The reason of 404 is that Lithium test site does not have the latest Kitsune database. These will be checked after migration and get verified.

  1/firefox/*/*/*/accounts-blocked -> kb/accounts-blocked 
  1/firefox/*/*/*/screenshare-safety -> kb/screenshare-safety
  1/mobile/*/*/*/new-ios-6 -> kb/whats-new-ios-6

Scott is there a special page in Lithium that lists popular articles of the android section? If yes can we change those redirects to link there?

Note that all the redirects redirect to the english article atm, due to Lithium not supporting Accept-Language redirects or having implemented l10n relations between kb articles.

We have pages like this that are attached to leaderboards (both users and content) like https://hwsfp35778.lithium.com/t5/kudos/leaderboardpage/category-id/firefox/timerange/one_month/tab/posts

There are all sorts of configurations of these in the Admin (exclusionary roles, time frame, content type).  At the moment, mozilla is not using any of these components so there isn't a link to them from the support site.

It may be possible for us to build these redirects (need one day to eval and build).  Our question is should we attempt this given the above and the fact that Mozilla may add these components eventually.

If there are references to Support articles from outside the Support site, it might be a better option to use the API to surface them versus a link to a subset.

Unable to replicate this.  All the above redirects are working.

Regarding the Special Page, we need to know what this page should be given the options listed.

Scott, most of these seem to redirect to  a REDIRECT header page instead of the article itself. E.g.: https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Troubleshooting/The-bookmarks-and-history-system-will-not-be-functional/ta-p/15993

Is that the expected behaviour? It looks like a very bad user experience.

Yes for this bug this is the expected behavior. I agree it's a very bad user experience and we need to fix bug 1336374
