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.

Parameters

status Optional
An optional status code for the response (e.g., 302.)

Return value

A Response object.
