Create App for Bing Searching

Hello,

I recently got a request asking how often people at our institution search via Bing.  I could not find any existing application that does this, so I thought this would be a great exercise to create an app, however my creations is not getting triggered at all.

I created an application based on the following criteria:

HTTP Method: GET

HTTP hostname: www.bing.com

HTTP URI content: "search?"

I believe that I made this correctly after following the documentation, and the configuration from the CLI is shown below for my app. HOWEVER, it never seems to fire properly when I search for anything on Bing. All I did was to define this app; I did not change any policies. I currently have outbound policies that permit all traffic. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

bing {

  signature {

  Bing-Search {

  and-condition {

  "And Condition 1" {

  or-condition {

  "Or Condition 1" {

  operator {

  pattern-match {

  qualifier {

  http-method {

  value GET;

  }

  }

  pattern www\.bing\.com;

  context http-req-host-header;

  }

  }

  }

  }

  }

  "And Condition 2" {

  or-condition {

  "Or Condition 1" {

  operator {

  pattern-match {

  qualifier {

  http-method {

  value GET;

  }

  }

  pattern search\?;

  context http-req-uri-path;

  }

  }

  }

  }

  }

  }

  scope protocol-data-unit;

  order-free no;

  }

  }

  subcategory internet-utility;

  category general-internet;

  technology browser-based;

  risk 3;

  evasive-behavior no;
