#19323 closed New feature (wontfix)

Add django.contrib.redirects setting for turning redirect on/off.

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


At the moment django.contrib.redirects doesn't allow to disable particular redirect.
To do this I have do remove it completely or rename old_path to nonexistent. It neither clear nor correct.
Good solution is to add is_active bool field with default=True.

A reasonable idea, but we're hampered by the lack of a built in schema migration system.

Marking it someday/maybe; once we have a built-in migration system, this sort of change will be easy to make, but in the meantime, it's a non-trivial change.

Can I assume this feature can be added now that we do have a built-in migration system?

I'm happy to write a patch, it seems like it might be a good ticket for me to get started with.

@ZeevG, migrations is still under active development and I don't think we're quite ready to add them to contrib apps yet. Stay tuned.

The current plan is to make changes to models in contrib apps in Django 1.8.

We'd need to include a documentation warning that since the default RedirectFallbackMiddleware.response_redirect_class is HttpResponsePermanentRedirect, the flag may have no effect on users who have already accessed the redirect and have it cached by their browser.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Discussion on the pull request with Berker concluded that adding this feature would likely be too confusing due to the default redirect being "permanent".
