URL redirects from MKTO PDFs

Our team is in process of converting PDFs into HTML pages.


The question stands, Is it possible to create redirects from a Marketo PDF URL to the newly created HTML page hosted on our website?


Trying to get around having to update 40x3 fulfillment email URLs.

Support has confirmed that this is in fact not possible, even by their intervention.

Looks like it's back to editing all of the FEs

Hi Geoff,

You can do this on you webserver (apache or similar) but many CMS will also enable you to do it in the CMS itself, which is sometimes easier.

But I think Geoff is talking about leaving existing links as-is (to avoid editing emails) and redirecting them via Marketo redirects (which will work).

OK, got it Indeed, as the source of the redirect is in Marketo, it will work well, Marketo playing the role of the web server/CMS I mentioned above. We have tested many times.

Yes, we tried a POC, but it was unsuccessful for PDFs

Per our team:"I checked with Marketo and it is not possible to redirect a PDF as PDF’s are treated differently in Marketo"

I'm opening a support ticket just to verify if they can or cannot do it either!
