Find Redirect

  • REST Method: GET
  • URL: https://docsapi.helpscout.net/v1/redirects

Use this endpoint to resolve the destination redirect URL from a particular URL path.

Using the Redirects API, it is possible create a chain of redirects such that one URL might result in a redirect to another URL, which can itself result in a further redirect. When such a chain of redirects exists, this endpoint will follow the chain from the initial URL through to the final destination URL.
