Response.redirect()

The redirect() method of the Response interface returns a Response resulting in a redirect to the specified URL.

Note: This is mainly relevant to the ServiceWorker API. A controlling service worker could intercept a page's request and redirect it as desired. This will actually lead to a real redirect if a service worker sends it upstream.

Syntax

var response = Response.redirect(url, status);

Parameters

url
The URL that the new response is to originate from.
status Optional
An optional status code for the response (e.g., 302.)

Return value

A Response object.

Exceptions

Exception Explanation
RangeError The specified status is not a redirect status.
TypeError The specified URL is invalid.

Example

responseObj.redirect('https://www.example.com', 302);
