Re: [integration-dev] wiki pages not available

Right, I think Abhijit proposal of keeping old wiki URL may be the only short term solution, even if that will slow down the confluence adoption :(

The team is adding an updated 404 page that should be ready shortly.  It will read something like:

We're sorry, this page can't seem to be found.
If you're looking for information on LF Networking please try
If you are looking for information on OpenDaylight, please note that the page you are looking for may not be migrated to our new site or may be found on a different URL. Please try
If you are still having trouble finding what you're looking for, please refer to the OpenDaylight wiki archive found at

I did a few Google searches myself and I did not see any erroneous links.  Can we get some examples?  If so, we can build links that point to the proper location.

they will be numerous, in my experience:

first link in a search for how to delete a flow:

first 3 links for what I was looking for yesterday:

first 2 links in search for opendaylight netconf project:

just a few quick ones so you can see what I mean.

Hello, everyone.

Just as a follow up.  I'm still looking into options with the team right now.  Google searches should not be sending people to the wrong links. 
I will try to provide an update today or in the morning.

At least have Conflunce have  a note on the 404 page so that random folks can be guided to wiki-archive .


I spent 30 minutes yesterday looking for some transportPCE documentation and couldn’t get to it.

The current plan for migration is: 

However currently the mediawiki has more info than Confluence and will lead to dead links for Google that Jamo mentions. 


Hence I suggest we take the opposite approach:

o   The information on this wiki may be out of date.

but serving up dead end pages to search results is not good for business either,
even if the pages are accessible through another link.

Hi Casey,

I know we switched over the wiki dns last week, but I thought we'd still
have access to our old wiki and that google search results would not
be broken?

Every link I hit from a search result lands me on confluence with
a "Page Not Found".

Maybe I misunderstood?
