I am looking to map some of the Salesforce Chatter pages that automatically get surfaced in the Community and redirect them back to a Home page to prevent some of the standard pages from being accessible. It looks like I can set up a 301 redirect on the Community site like the following:

Source URL: /_ui/core/chatter/groups/GroupListPage
Redirect Type: Permanent (301)
Target URL: /

However, if a smart user enters something like the following in the browser, it doesn't get caught:


I was trying some different characters to see if I could create some sort of wildcard, but I didn't have much luck. Does Salesforce support more dynamic definitions for the Source URL?

No. I've tried this, and it's going to read them exactly as written.

Custom pages can have client side (JavaScript) redirects, but probably not the default chatter pages.

  • A good thought. We can probably put some my dynamic javascript redirects in the Community Header HTML. Less appealing than configuring the 301 Redirects, but would get the job done. – Michael Welburn Jun 26 '14 at 12:41
  • You might consider a custom setting that resembles the SF redirect UI but feeds javascript on the page that supports wildcards. Easier to manage that way. – Shane McLaughlin Jun 26 '14 at 13:19
