    umbracoUrlAlias not working and returning 404


    Umbraco version 8.0.1

    I have setup umbracoUrlAlias field exactly as mentioned on

    However, no matter what the URL in the umbracoUrlAlias goes to 404 page. I have googled and tried all possible solutions, like lower case, trailing slash etc but nothing seems to help.

    Can someone please help me urgently.

    Thank you

    CMS Student, peace be upon those who follow guidance.

    To get more details about your case I suggest that you post more about content and document type used with that routing.

    I create a simple test Document Type called UrlAliasTest with these fields

    1. title as textstring
    2. umbracoUrlAlias as textstring

    enter image description here

    I then then created an item based on this Document Type in Content called test and set

    1. title as "Title 1"
    2. umbracoUrlAlias as test23

    enter image description here

    Now when I Open the URL as /en/devtest/test/ it works, but it throws 404 on /en/test23/. It works without the language though i.e. as /test23/

    enter image description here

    Faced the same problem. As a workaround you can do the following:

    1. Allow 'umbracoUrlAlias' property to vary by culture (in document type)

    2. Include culture prefix explicitly in the document for each culture i.e. 'en/your-custom-url-alias', 'fr/your-custom-url-alias' etc.

    3. This produces an ugly url on Info Tab like '/en/en/your-custom-url-alias' (but you do not care). It's working. And '/en/your-custom-url-alias' not causing the 404 error and the culture specific item is shown.

    Still not working in 8.12.1.

    In our case, the resulting URL cannot include the culture because it is used as part of a monitoring solution that we do not have control to change the target url path
