    Changing the backoffice access URL in Umbraco Cloud

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a way to change the URL used to access the backoffice, from "/umbraco" to "/admin". I've found several web pages with ways to do this, but they are all either for the old URLRewriting.net URL rewriting syntax, or rely on renaming the Umbraco folder in the file system, which I assume I cannot do as it will be reverted during automatic upgrades.

    I don't need to block access to /umbraco, but I do need it to hide the "/umbraco" URL and show "/admin" instead, if "/admin" is typed in.

    Can anyone show me how to do this? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi Alex,

    Unfortunately, no. I still don't have a solution for this. If I find one, I'll be sure to post it here.

    Thanks,
    David

    Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? I've done a lot of research, but come up empty handed.

    I've tried URL rewrites, but they just end up redirecting to /umbraco. I've tried updating the umbracoPath plus making a hardlink to the Umbraco directory, but that results in a totally broken backoffice.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    David

    I am also definitely interested in something like this - we self-host, but the information is still somewhat spotty as to how this is actually achieved reliably.

    Hi David,

    I don't know if it is possible on cloud. You better contact cloud support for that.

    But what you can do is only allow access to the umbraco part for certain IP-addresses.

    You can find that in this presentation by Jeffrey Schoemaker : https://www.perplex.nl/media/107928/codegarden-18-umbraco-security.pdf

    He shows the IP-whitelisting but also how to change the backend url.

    Dave
