HTTP 301 redirection
Maria Dorothy 10-March-2016 9:52 UTC
Also, as part of the move to our new platforms we are investigating the best approach to configuring the existing API interface to pass your requests to the new WOW engine. Please can you let us know if your existing systems would be able to handle a HTTP 301 redirect message (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_301 for details), if not we will look at providing an alternative approach.
This is intended as an interim measure to allow us to manage the migration of applications to the new platform, once the new system is live and fully documented we will provide you information so that you can schedule the migration of your systems to using the new WOW Engine directly.

The system is prepared to deal with redirection, so in principle no problem.
But to be 100% sure we should test it

We will discuss it with UKMO tomorrow during our telephone call
