Managing Course Slugs
print icon

Once your course has been created or if you are in the middle of creating your course, you need to make sure you have a unique course slug within your course URL. A course slug is a required course identifier that is visible to end learners. Course slugs are configurable and appear at the end of the course URL. For example: in the URL, the course slug is “sample-course-123.” 


In order to ensure learners only access the courses they’re authorized to use, each course’s course slug must be unique within your tenant and cannot be used more than once.  By default, a course’s slug is the name of the course, adjusted to meet standard URL syntax guidelines. For example, if you create a course named “Sample Course 123,” the default course slug will be “sample-course-123.”  Users with the BluePrint Admin role can change course slugs after course creation. Other BluePrint roles do not have permission to edit course slugs.




Editing a Course Slug

1. Log into BluePrint as a BluePrint Admin.

2. Locate the course you need to edit.

3. Select the Edit button to edit the course.

4. Update the course slug by editing the content in the Custom Slug field.

5. Select Save.



The slug will update in real-time as soon as you save it! Please note that, to follow standard URL syntax guidelines, course slugs can only include lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens. If you input a course slug that is already compliant, our system will not change it. If you input a course slug that does not follow these guidelines, BluePrint will automatically sanitize the URL upon saving.   


  • Dashes (“-”) will replace all spaces. 

  • Lowercase letters will replace capital letters. 

  • Non-alphanumeric characters will be removed. 

Inputting the course slug “K&E Course 15” would result in the course slug “ke-course-15.” Likewise, inputting “This Is My Course Slug” or “this-is-my-course-slug” will result in the same slug. Before you publish your courses, as a best practice, you should ensure each slug is unique and is the slug you wish to have at the end of your URL for learner access.
