Magento2 product url displaying with category and product id

The question:

Product urls are displaying with category and product id

Now url is displaying like below http://localhost/magento2/catalog/product/view/id/1234/category/12/

But i want http://localhost/magento2/test-product

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

Try to edit 1st level or 2nd level categories and simply save it and it will generates rewrites for products assigned to that category. This worked for me when i migrated store from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

Method 2

We can configure it by URL Rewrites

  1. Go to Magento 2 Admin -> Marketing -> SEO & Search -> URL Rewrites

  2. Find the path by searching Request path column.

  3. Remove the cache php bin/magento cache:clean.

  4. Refresh the front-end, click the main menu category then you can see the configured path.


You Can Build category URL path by


Modify getUrlPath($category) by Magento Plug-in feature.

Hope this helps.
