Customizing and redirecting article URLs

Learn how to create an alias redirect for your help article URLs

Last updated on February 10, 2022

HelpKit’s Article Redirect feature allows you to create alias links for your help articles. This allows you to enter an alternative path that redirects to your target article. Besides being helpful for sending shorter links it can also help migrating from another knowledge base service while keeping the same custom domain.
