Django redirect URL with parameter, inside file?

I'm using Django 1.9. Is there any way to redirect a URL with a parameter in my file?

I want to permanently redirect a URL like

to the corresponding URL

I know how to redirect within a view, but I'm wondering if there's any way to do it solely inside


You can use RedirectView. As long as the old and new url patterns have the same args and kwargs, you can use pattern_name to specify the url pattern to redirect to.

from django.views.generic.base import RedirectView

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'^neworg/(?P<pk>\d+)/$', new_view, name='new_view'),
    url(r'^org/(?P<pk>\d+)/$', RedirectView.as_view(pattern_name='new_view'), name='old_view')
