Work with the locations of an item

To work with item locations you first need to get a reference to the ContentLocationService, which is your entry point for retrieving the information about the locations.

You get a reference to the service in the following way: 

var clService = SystemManager.GetContentLocationService();

Information provided by the ContentLocationService

The ContentLocationService provides you with an enumeration of IContentItemLocation objects – these are all the locations where the specified item can be opened.

Information provided by the IContentItemLocation interface

IContentItemLocation interface provides information about a specific content item location. You can get the ItemAbsoluteUrl for this location. If this location is the default (canonical) – this is the canonical URL of the item. The interface contains information for the PageId, SiteId, and a Boolean value indicating, if this location is the default (canonical) one.
