We brought up the idea of using our YAML file for redirects. There are a number of problems with this though, as well as many existing problems.

Current problems:

  • If the application is down, redirects don't work
  • If we wanted to make a Azure storage hosted version, we don't have an application or ngnix to fall back on for redirects
  • Redirects are project level currently

New problems:

  • Keeping per-version redirects in YAML makes a lot of sense, but per-project redirects are still valid and do not make sense in YAML
  • Because of ^ we need 2 sets of redirects -- the UX would probably be to make current redirects "Project Redirects"
  • Making per-version redirect model is okay, as we can update the database per-version on build, but the point above about azure redirects is valid still.

So, design decision looks a little like this:

  • Does azure support some method of hosting files and providing redirects (and not http meta redirects)?
  • If not, is hosting files directly from storage the right solution? If not, perhaps a load balancer and nginx sort of situation makes sense in front somehow?
  • If azure does support this, how do we do config file redirects -> ? -> azure redirect?
