# Overview

function Redirect(status: string | number, location?: string): Function;

# Description

Redirects to the URL derived from the specified path, with specified status, a positive integer that corresponds to an HTTP status code . If not specified, status defaults to “302 “Found”.

 @Redirect('/foo/bar')
 @Redirect(301, 'http://example.com')
 private myMethod() {}

Redirects can be a fully-qualified URL for redirecting to a different site:

 @Redirect('http://google.com');
 private myMethod() {}

Redirects can be relative to the root of the host name. For example, if the application is on http://example.com/admin/post/new, the following would redirect to the URL http://example.com/admin:

 @Redirect('/admin');
1

Redirects can be relative to the current URL. For example, from http://example.com/blog/admin/ (notice the trailing slash), the following would redirect to the URL http://example.com/blog/admin/post/new.

 @Redirect('post/new');
1

Redirecting to post/new from http://example.com/blog/admin (no trailing slash), will redirect to http://example.com/blog/post/new.

If you found the above behavior confusing, think of path segments as directories (with trailing slashes) and files, it will start to make sense.

Path-relative redirects are also possible. If you were on http://example.com/admin/post/new, the following would redirect to http//example.com/admin/post:

 @Redirect('..');
``

A back redirection redirects the request back to the referer, defaulting to / when the referer is missing.

```typescript
 @Redirect('back');
