Allowing access (read only) to docs.google.com/viewer without allowing access to Online Personal Storage categorized sites

We have a situation where a site categorized as "computers and internet" (allowed for all users in our environment) references a pdf located on Google Docs (which is categorized as online personal storage).  An example is docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://www.netapp.com/us/media/ds-3546-0114.pdf&embedded=true.

   This uses the app Google-Docs-Base (risk 5) to display the docs.

    I am wondering if anyone has set up read only access to this type of site/destinaton without having to allow access to Online Personal Storage categorized sites?

Thanks

Hello Art,

If you don't want to allow Online Personal Storage categorized sites. You may add those specific URL in the allow list. The PAN firewall will Check first BLOCK list > ALLOW list >Custom > Predefied. If any URL matches with allow-list, it will not trigger the action for predefined category.

Thanks.
