Browsing Quota Time ?

Browsing Quota Time ?

I am coming from Forcepoint from a proxy perspective.  My questions is, does the Palo Alto support user browsing policies, and user quota times ?


I am looking to have some block list and white list created.   I am also wanting to give certain users limited browsing time, i.e., about an hour of browsing time during working hours.  Is this possble?

seems to be asked a lot, but I don't recall seeing any response other than no, not directly possible.

Hi @Ian_Trimble,


Currently not possible.

However there are several feature requests for it already.


Please reach out to your local SE and have him add your vote to it.


Cheers !

I can't gurantee that it somehow isn't doable; but easily and natively the answer would be no. You could utilize the api to move users to seperate groups automatically if you could find a way to log time and add it up to see when it hit an hour, then initiate an api call to actually move the user group into a deny rule.

It's been a couple of years, has there been any change on some sort of quota system in PA?
