Creating a custom app-id to block SocialMiner admin access

Hi guys, so I need to create a custom-id to block SocialMiner administrative access including the following:








I need to block access to these pages using both the fqdn typed in the browser and the ip address.  I tried instituting a block policy for these using the http-uri-request-path variable but it only seems to block requests coming froom firefox.  Can someone please assist?

Do you have a license for URL filtering?  I'd create a Filter in there with the specific URL's you want to block.

We do but the problem is I don't think that url filtering can block specific pages but not others.

The UI lets you enter them into the filter but I will review that admin guide to verify it will enforce it that way.


I checked the Admin guide and web gui guide and neither state it's not allowed so I would give it a try.  Create a filter and add all the variations in the block list and test it.

sounds like something I should definitely try thanks for the quick answers... It would still be great to do this via a custom app-id though

can you screenshot or provdie a google chrome developer mode output or a wireshark pcap after creating the custom app-id ?

Also do you ahve your scope to transaction or session ?

also is the admin access all over HTTP ? and not ssl
