#19321 closed New feature (fixed)

Add django.contrib.redirects setting for redirect status.

At the moment django.contrib.redirects redirects only with status 301(Moved Permanently).
It doesn't allow to use django.contrib.redirects if user needs temporary redirect (one of 302/303/307).
This can be solved easily with with adding optional parameter REDIRECT_STATUS_CODE=301/302/303/307.
It will make redirects middleware more flexible and convenient.

The trend is more to add a redirect_class (HttpResponseRedirectBase subclass) attribute instead of setting the status code directly (see #19277). But yes, this seems to be a reasonable feature to add.

I attached a patch with the general idea.

It'd be nice to make the implementation, tests (and docs if we decide to document this API) consistent between the redirects and locale middleware (#19277).

I've applied the patch and added tests in this pull request.

I didn't add docs because of the comments in #19277. Is this still the case here?

Needs documentation: set

I think we might as well document these attributes and also include a mention in the release notes.
