Redirect different user groups to customised homepages to provide relevant and specific information for each user group.

Overview

In Confluence, you can define only one global homepage. The Homepage Redirect app takes it one step further: Administrators can assign unique homepages to several individual user groups. As soon as user access Confluence, they are redirected to a homepage that was set up for their user group.

The destination of the redirect can be a page, a blog post or a space homepage. If the defined page has a pre-defined design, the page will be displayed exactly in that way. This makes the app Homepage Redirect most valuable to all customers with tailored Confluence colour schemes and/or third-party skins and themes.


The Homepage Redirect app works well in combination with our Enterprise Theme app.

Use Case

Typical applications:

  • Holdings with a unique corporate design per subsidiary
  • Companies with different homepages per business unit or departments


  • Businesses with the need for separate homepages for clients and external partners
