I have a site collection with URL https://MySharepoint.Dev.com/default.aspx.

I just want to know if some one browses to this it should redirect to https://MySharepoint.Dev.com without default.aspx page.

I have almost around 30 sitecollections like this. Is there any setting where we can just include like that?

I would use URL Rewrite module for this with pattern

(?:[^*]+)(?=\/default\.aspx)

In case you wish to get rid of /pages/ as well, use this for pattern

(?:[^*]+)(?=\/pages\/default\.aspx)

and Rewrite URL

{R:0}

It will tackle at least these scenarios

Details on configuring URL Rewrite module can be found here.

  • I tried this but still when i browse ( mysp.com/Pages/default.aspx). it still browse the same default.aspx page – sandy143 Apr 6 '17 at 3:18
  • If you test that URL in "Test pattern..." dialog, does it match your Pattern and return correct redirect URL in the {R:0} variable? – Jussi Palo Apr 6 '17 at 6:29
  • Yes It is Returning up to Pages. But when i browse the url it is not – sandy143 Apr 6 '17 at 10:11
  • Oh, your question didn't have /Pages/ there in the middle. If in browser you type just mysp.com, to what page you end up? – Jussi Palo Apr 6 '17 at 10:59
  • I tried for the site which has mysite.sarepoint.com/default.aspx. It works in the Rewrite Condition but it does not work when i paste the same url in browser – sandy143 Apr 6 '17 at 11:19
