Override Generated SEO URLs

If the URL Rules module enabled, you can use the Page URL attribute to override the URL that is generated from the configuration in the URL Rules module. You can apply character replacement for URLs created with this override.

Note: This topic assumes that you have enabled the URL Rules module and are not using the deprecated SEO Support module. There is no way to override generated URLs in the SEO Support module, though you can include the Page URL attribute in your rule syntax to allow for customizable endpoints.

To configure Salesforce B2C Commerce to use the Page URL attribute to override generated URLs:

  1. Select site > Merchant Tools > SEO > URL Rules.
  2. Click the Catalog URLs or Content URLs tab, depending on the type of URL you want to configure.
  3. Under the correct URL rule section, check Enable override with 'pageURL' attribute (if set).
  4. Import the appropriate values for the page URL attribute or navigate to the product in Business Manager and add a value to the Page URL field.
  5. Wait for the SEO URLs to regenerate. You can monitor the status of the generation job on the URL Rules page General tab.

While you are developing a strategy for your URLs, it is recommended to manually create Page URL attribute values to test them. Instead of using an input feed, you can manually enter these in Business Manager.
