I changed the hierarchy of my site. there we 2 pages as following:

http://www.example.com/cms/products-search.php

Which moved to : /new/pro-search.php

And

http://www.example.com/cms/data-products-details.php?pro=1111

Which moved to /new/products-details.php?pro=1111

Answer

You should redirect to your new page location using

301 "Moved Permanently" redirect

Which has to be setup pro grammatically in your HTACCESS file, simple example:

Redirect 301 /something https://www.mynewapp.com/something/a?someextra

The 301 "Perma Redirect" tell Search Engine that you page has moved for good at new location and any Page Rank should be transferred to new URL.
