4 Attributes

4.1 location

This attribute is required.
location = URL String | ISML expression
Use the location attribute to specify a target URL used by the browser to send a new request.


Some browsers do not support redirecting from HTTP to HTTPS. To prevent this problem, use the HTML meta tag refresh instead:

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL='#URLEX(...)#'">.

4.2 httpstatus

This attribute is optional.
httpstatus = Integer | ISML expression
Specifies the status code of the HTTP response.
