How to write redirect rules for Magento 2 websites; much of the procedure will be familiar to Magento 1 users.

  1. Log in to your Magento 2 administrative panel.

  2. In the main menu, click Marketing.

  3. In the Marketing menu, click URL Rewrites.
  4. If you are familiar with Magento 1.x, Magento 2 uses the same interface from this point forward. Click Add URL Rewrite.
  5. Leave the Create URL Rewrite drop-down list on its default setting, Custom. Fill the Store, Request Path, and Target Path fields.
    • The Request Path is the original path.
    • The Target Path is the new path corresponding to the new web address. This will serve as the target of the redirect rule.

  6. In the Redirect Type drop-down list, select either 301 or 302, as appropriate.

  7. Click Save. If successful, you will see the message, “The URL Rewrite has been saved.”
