Is it possible to create an alias to a WebAPI controller action? I try to add one from the Alias admin screen in Orchard by giving it a name and a Route Path such as...

api/MyModule/MyController/5

but when I click save it takes me to in the index of Aliases and the route has automatically been saved as

Common/Error/NotFound?path=api%2FMyModule%2FMyController%2F5

The action is working and hittable using its non alias route. Any advice much appreciated.

I think aliases only work for MVC routes, so not for WebAPI routes.
