Define the routes like below.For example consider a AuthPermissionRoute which gives permission to the particular roles specified and gives error if the user is Unauthorized.

 export class AuthPermissionRoute extends React.Component {
render() {
    let { component: Component, ...rest } = this.props
    return this.state.render ? (<Route
      render={props =>
        this.state.authenticated ? (
          <Component {...props} />
        ) : (
                pathname: '/',
                state: { from: props.location, msg: "Unauthorized" }
    />) : false
<AuthPermissionRoute /> component will check all permissions and then redirect the user to the specified url
class AppRoutes extends Component {
    render() {
        return (
                <AuthPermissionRoute exact path={'/help'} component={Help} />
                {/* add n number routes in this switch statement */}
export default withRouter(AppRoutes)
