Redirecting to another page

From CSUMB Data Glossary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Some data terms within the CSUMB Data Glossary may have two different names associated with a single definition.

In these cases, one page is deemed the primary definition page and other pages with different names are directed to it.

There are two different ways of redirecting:

  1. When a term with a shared definition has its own metadata (e.g. it appears on dashboards with its unique name or is available as a column in OBIEE with its own unique name), the method of redirecting is to populate the page content with "See [primary definition page]", where [primary definition page] would be an internal link to the primary definition page. For more information on linking to an internal page, see Adding links to a page.
    • In this scenario, the user is first directed to a page titled with the secondary term name, which includes metadata on where that term name appears. The user can then click the "See ..." link to redirect to the primary definition page.
    • For example, see Adult Students (shared definition page pointing at the primary page) and Age 25 + (primary page).
  2. When a term with a shared definition does not have its own metadata (e.g., it previously appeared on dashboards under another name but was subsequently renamed to the term name on the primary definition page), the method of redirecting is to use the Page Settings in the Hamburger menu in the edit page header navigation to

    For example, see Admissions Cohort Type (redirecting page), which redirects to the primary definition page for Student Cohort. In this case the data element changed names in the CSUMB Data Warehouse, so the redirecting page is the legacy (previous) name for Student Cohort.

Option 1 is the most common way of redirecting within the CSUMB Data Glossary.
