This functionality will likely only be available for customers who have migrated to PANDB and even then i would suggest this would only be for things like SAFESEARCH .. things like YouTube for EDU will likely not be supported anytime soon .. our deployment is about 50K users spread over 100 virtual systems and we realised very early on that for anything that requires a rewrite it would need to be done off-box (we use F5)

Here are some of our code-snippets

We would like this feature too. Has been requested from our users more than any other feature. 4,000 staff, 15,000 students.

We have been asking for this feature since we migrated to PA from Websense, which had it. We had been using Youtube Safety mode instead, not perfect but better than nothing, and now that is not working since the Google merge. We need this functionality! We are a K3-12 school district. Hope it will come soon.

Why doesn't this post get a response from PA?  Not just a moderator, some one with some impact that can really answer to this issue.  It's not like an issue that has not been addressed in the security world, other companies have addressed and resolved it.  PA needs to give this some serious attention.

How about it Palo Alto?

For now we are using a workaround that sends youtube traffic through a proxy so we can do a url-rewrite.  We use a pac file for students that is applied via gpo.  That pac file then drops all traffic locally except for the youtube traffic which is sent to a squid proxy server.  In squid you can do a url-rewrite with a perl script.  Its a big band-aid but it works for now.

I agree with MemphisBrothers - not sure why this hasnt been responded to.

Whilst this is enough enough to do in a single site instance, it will not scale to a service provider model.

Palo Alto really need to address this..
