Where is the link to Create a Managed Path in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration?

This morning I was wondering: Where did my Central Admin link to Managed Paths go?

If you’ve been looking around for the link to Define a Managed Path in SharePoint 2010, stop looking. It’s not on the Central Administration “Control Panel” page(s). Instead, when you go to create a new Site Collection, there is a link.

If you are like me, you have a predefined set you want to use. Until I get the PowerShell commands posted, use this:


To remember it, all pages in CA are either in _admin or in _layouts. This one is admin, and then Site Collection Prefix (or scprefix.aspx).

I only post this just as a tip in case you were going crazy looking for it!

    Thnx this was helpfull and I have to add that the link “Learn about managed paths” says following where to find it also 😉

    To define managed paths:

    On the Quick Launch, click Application Management.
    On the Application Management page, under Web Applications, click Manage Web applications. Select the Web application that you want to configure, and then click Managed Paths on the ribbon.
    On the Define Managed Paths page, in the Included Paths section, to delete a path or paths, select the check boxes for the paths that you want to delete, and then click Delete selected paths.
    In the Add a New Path section, to include a new path within the URL namespace, type the path in the Path box. Click Check URL to open a Web browser window to the specified path.
    In the Type list, click one of the following:
    Wildcard Inclusion. Select this option to include all paths that are subordinate to the specified path.
    Explicit Inclusion. Select this option to include the site that is indicated by the specified path. Sites subordinate to the specified path are not included.
    Click OK.
