    Hi Nibedita,

    Never tried that... it should work I assume.

    But alias is usually something very short, like /irj/portal/classic, /irj/portal/anonymous

    Short URL is not that short, right? 😭

    Hi Nibedita,

    I've never tried this option but may be you can give it a try.

    Try to define a master rule for the role itself and assign the specific portal desktop to it.

    Hi Nibedia,

    Before using an alias in the Master Rule Collection you have to make sure it exist in the URL Alias Manager.

    There are some predefined aliases that exists (classic, anonymous, interop, etc).

    If it doesnt exist (such as specific short url) , you should create it first in the URL Alias Manager and then you can use it in the master rule collection.

      Hi Nibedita,

      This is indeed impossible to add such an alias, so this cannot be the solution.

      What you can try is to create a new iView and add it to the framework page. iview will no render anything so it will not affect the display.

      In this custom iView, you can read the location url , and see if its pointing to this short url... , if it is - do something --> Redirect, show a popup on screen ,etc
