SXA redirects should not be used normally for any links generation. Their purpose is completely different.

When you create a this-url-should-be-redirected redirect item and configure its Redirection URL to some-another-link, when someone tries to open https://yourwebsite/this-url-should-be-redirected, browser will redirect them to https://yourwebsite/some-another-link.

You can read more here: https://doc.sitecore.com/xp/en/users/sxa/17/sitecore-experience-accelerator/redirect-a-url.html


To add a class in an anchor tag, Sitecore provides you with the OOTB option to do this. So when you click on the insert link, you can find the option to add a class name

And if you want to do some customization then you have to create your own processor and then need to register this. To know more about this, you can follow these links.



  • When I am adding in style class it is not showing in anchor tag which is created by redirects in experience editor .

  • I Added that using experience editor and the output is showing the class. <a href="/amazon/login" data-variantitemid="{C0B095E6-4F35-4208-8209-AAB9446A7BD7}" data-variantfieldname="Link" class="testclass">login</a></div> So I have found one more thing for you. If you are using a rendering variant. Follow this article sitecore.stackexchange.com/questions/16508/… Commented Apr 22, 2022 at 6:19
