Deprecation: #85124 - Redirecting urlHandler Hook Concept

See forge#85124


The URL handler concept introduced in TYPO3 v7 to allow pages to do redirects has been deprecated in favor of using PSR-7 / PSR-15 middlewares.

The Redirect URL handlers were used for e.g. jumpURLs, pages that should redirect to an external URL or special handlings registered via the \TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\Http\UrlHandlerInterface.

All functionality and methods have been marked as deprecated and will be removed in TYPO3 v10.0.


Calling $TSFE->initializeRedirectUrlHandlers() and $TSFE->redirectToExternalUrl() will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Affected Installations

TYPO3 Installations with extensions registering a urlHandler via $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['urlProcessing']['urlHandlers'].


Check the extension scanner if the site is affected and migrate to a PSR-15 middleware.
