Why does the redirect go to the get method "/ideas" only when we have a post method with the same url pattern ?

There are two methods get and post with the same url pattern for the URL redirect example. Then how does the response.redirect() method differenciate which method to go into.

Redirect method does not go to POST lambda, it goes only to GET.

Why ?

Because POST request is a special type of request where you submit something using <form method="post">

I don't know how else to explain ...

But you CANNOT redirect to post lambda...
