Describe the issue:
It was there two days ago. Today it returns 404.
Suggestions for improvement:
Make the original URL redirect to https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Satellite/6.1/html/User_Guide/sect-Red_Hat_Satellite-User_Guide-Configuring_External_Authentication-Using_Active_Directory_Directly.html which seems to be the new location of that chapter.
Don't break links.
This is really important issue. We should not breaks links. Breaking links that are used by people privately is just as bad as breaking links in public documents.
If the build chain does not track the URL changes, the tool that deploys the new version needs to do it. Let me know if a separate bugzilla is to be filed.
For this particular issue, please add redirect from sect-Red_Hat_Satellite-User_Guide-AD_direct.html to sect-Red_Hat_Satellite-User_Guide-Configuring_External_Authentication-Using_Active_Directory_Directly.html.
Is there a plan for implementing redirects or anything similar when we reorganize books, create new books and migrate content from other books, or delete sections or chapters that are no longer relevant?
To be clear, clean_ids didn't "break everything". It *can* touch many files and update many ids. It doesn't necessarily update 100s and 1000s every time it runs. All internal references are maintained. For the moment it's no longer used.
