URL Structure changes in recent upgrade (>=16)

Recently there was a change in the URLs structure (see Deprecations by version | GitLab),
so that now something like git.company.com/project/repo/commit/<SHA> won’t work but instead a - is needed to be added like so git.company.com/project/repo/-/commit/<SHA>.

Having said that, a few days ago I’ve noticed that URLs of the former structure are automatically being redirected to the latter structure - Can anybody confirm this is the intended behavior and not something random that I’ve possibly encountered? I’ve tried to look for a commit/issue/etc. that talks about this but didn’t find anything.


It seems there really are redirects now. Good to know :slight_smile:
