Supported URL components in Bulk Redirects

You can only add a query string to the target URL if you do not keep the original query string (that is, if Preserve query string is false). If you set Preserve query string to true, the query string of the request will be passed along when there is a match for the source URL.

  1. Supported in source URL = No means that you cannot include the component in the source URL to match against the URL of incoming requests. ↩︎

Bulk Redirects also support target URLs without an authority component 2, like the following URL:

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:2bd9d334e8d1e5bd7768755173222db5c6dea13b&dn=archlinux-2021.07.01-x86_64.iso
  1. The URL authority is the combination of user information, host, and port components.
