youtube application

Hello I have a doubt about applications:

If I search in my palo alto object>applications    search: youtube I obtain next output

youtube.JPGI can add to a policy rule youtube but when I open I found that

youtube 2.JPG


don't have dependency, and implicitly application uses.

I s correct to add youtube in a rule and not some child? 

If is correct to do it, this is equal to add all child of youtube? 


Thank you

Hi @Marivi,


Adding all the childs is pretty much the same as adding the parent app.

The childs just offer more granular control of what you would like to block/allow exactly (posting comments or uploading video content for example).

Re: youtube application

thank you for your answer, but I'm still confusing with this:

If adding the parent is the same to add all child, I will have dependences of the applications that child has? I mean, for example:

youtube base- has dependence with google-base as you can see, but in youtube parent there isn't dependences.

Re: youtube application


It doesn't list the dependencies because the 'youtube' app-id is essentially just there to map all the child applications. If you use it in a policy and attempt to validate it will throw errors during the validation process that you aren't allowing all the dependencies.
