AEM adds ‘.html’ to the Redirect URL of Internal Pages


Experience Manager

AEM adds .html to the URL fragment (or anchor, the last part of the URL starting from #). For example:

/content/we-retail/us/en/men.html#FEATURED - /content/we-retail/us/en/men.html#FEATURED.html

Steps to reproduce:
1-Create a new content page page1 under /content/we-retail.
2-Select page1  Properties.
3-In Advanced tab  'Redirect' field, set '/content/we-retail/us/en/men.html#FEATURED'.
4-Access page1 with 'View as Published'.
$  curl -v -u admin:admin http://localhost:6402/content/we-retail/page1.html?wcmmode=disabled
* About to connect() to localhost port 6402 (#0)
HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2020 08:21:19 GMT
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
Content-Type: text/html;charset=utf-8
Location: http://localhost:6402/content/we-retail/us/en/men.html#FEATURED.html?wcmmode=disabled
Content-Length: 0
* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact


This is a hard-coded behavior. The is adding .html to the redirect URL if the redirect target is a space within the same AEM.
