Moved Sites, Broken Links > Solution

While we move SharePoint Sites to new locations, we face the following challenges:

  1. Broken Links in Site pages
  2. Broken Links in Documents
  3. Broken Links in Offline Bookmarks
  4. Broken Links in Custom Applications & Pingbacks

and more..

The immediate solution for Production environment would be:

  1. Use URL Redirection for old links
  2. Publish documentation of new links, so that users will start using new links
  3. After a period, search inside SharePoint using the old links, ensure no obsolete urls, stop redirection

Following is one Helpful Tool for the same purpose: RDA Collaboration Team Projects > SharePoint URL Redirector
