Enter the alias you would like to create, as well as the target site for which it will be used. Then click Save.

For example, to create an alias named coursereview for a site with a site id of f85b8cef-8ce6-4a47-914f-d1729ca0bf74, you would enter:

  • Alias = coursereview
  • Target =  /site/0a8d9b18-c5b1-4a0a-aeaf-41235f68f101

Creating an alias from the Sites tool.
