Redirect URLs Are Shorter and More Informative

In Lightning Experience, the redirect URLs that appear in your browser address field are now more succinct and clear. We fixed URL redirection in feeds to follow platform standards. The standard syntax is shorter, easier on the eyes, and includes the informative feed item ID.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Contact Manager, Group, Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

Why: The old syntax redirect URL that you got with links in Chatter notification emails was long and provided no useful information about the feed item.

The new syntax is /lightning/<feedItemId>/view. It’s shorter, and it includes the ever-useful feed item ID.
