A page alias is an alternative address (URL) to a Confluence page or blog post. Aliases are very helpful to make page URLs more meaningful. Every page or blog post can have multiple aliases, which is useful when more than one language is being used in Confluence.
Another advantage of aliases is the fact that an alias can be reused. E.g: A Confluence page with a contact form is replaced with a different page that contains a new contact form. The alisas contact, which is pointing to the page with the old contact form, can simply be reassigned to the page with the new form. Without the user noticing, the same alias has been changed to linked to the new contact page with a totally different URL.
Other possible use cases are:
- The aliases contact and kontakt both point to the same page Contact Us. This allows multilingual access to the same contact page.
- If the aliases Help, Support, ServiceDesk and care are assigned to the page Support, users have the possiblity to use different URLs depending on the context.
- The alias latest-release can always link to the most recent release notes.
A user can view all aliases that have been created for a page: Tools → Link to this Page... or with the short cut.
