Click on the paper and magnifying glass icon on the far left of the lost. It'll bring up more details and there you should be able to see in the middel as to what it found and why it was blocked.


Hope that helps.

we were able to resolve the issue. turns out the USER ID was coming across with only part of the domain name and the policy was set for the full domain name. There for, my traffic was never meeting the criteria for the policy and fell into the explicit deny.

I can not agree with you explanation, since if the user is not matching then it's going the deny rule at the end is fine. But here it's identified as a 'threat'. So should be blocked by URL Filtering. But if it is also not.. That's the issue. I'm also facing same issue. Traffic is dentified as a threat in traffic log. But URL Filtering action is allowed.
