Homepage Redirects

Examples of Homepage Redirects for different user groups

 

Using the Redirect app, administrators can assign unique homepages to several individual user groups. As soon as users access Confluence, they are redirected to a homepage that was set up for their user group. The destination of the redirect can be a page, a blog post or a space homepage.
If the defined page has a predefined design, the page will be displayed exactly in that way. This makes the app most valuable to all customers with tailored Confluence colour schemes and/or third-party skins and themes. The app works well in combination with our Enterprise Theme app.


Use Cases of Homepage Redirects


Typical applications:

  • Holdings with a unique corporate design per subsidiary

  • Companies with different homepages per business unit or departments



  • Businesses with the need for separate homepages for clients and external partners
