    Redirect API

    This is the read-only API for delivering redirects, caused by moving or renaming content in the umbraco backoffice, to any app, website, device, or platform.

    The redirect API is only available if your project is using the Content Delivery Platform. You can verify this in the umbraco backoffice, settings section in the headless overview panel.


    To request redirects in a specific language, a culture parameter can be specified. When no culture is specified it's treated as invariant and the default language will be returned.

    Access via an Accept-Language header

    GET https://cdn.umbraco.io/redirect
    Accept-Language: en-US

    Access via a Query String parameter

    GET https://cdn.umbraco.io/redirect?culture=en-US

    Common Headers

    Accept-Language: {culture}
    Api-Version: 2.3
    Umb-Project-Alias: {project-alias}


    If an error occours, you will receive a HTTP status code along with an API error code and an error message in the response body.
