Document ID in URL path for record pages

Component: VLO web app Version:

Proposal by Go:

In terms of sustainability, it would be good to start discussing improving VLO record identifiers. I think we could improve a bit simply by removing system specific strings etc. For instance, instead of

So make the document ID a path parameter instead of a query parameter. Redirect rules and/or redundant handlers within the application will have to be put in place in order to keep old links and bookmarks from breaking.

Milestone: VLO-3.4VLO-4.0 or later

After touching a related part of code, I realised that this was raised before but we decided to not use a path parameter for the document ID, as they often contain forward slashes, which obviously is problematic (these could be escaped or encoded but there doesn't appear to be a generic solution and it also doesn't necessarily make the URLs prettier).

Needs more thought/discussion, so taking it off of the 3.4 milestone.
