URL filtering action preference when a same URL is included in 2 different custom categories.

Hi All,

 

What action would URL filtering prefer if the same URLs are placed in 2 different custom categories with different actions in a profile.

 

Example

 

custom_URL_category_1 = *.somesite.com

custom_URL_category_2 = *.somesite.com

 

On the URL filtering profile

 

custom_URL_category_1 = alert

custom_URL_category_2 = block

 

which one would take preference?

 

thanks and regards,

@jlpanes2493,

From my understanding a block action will always take precedence over any other action present.
