Button for "Dynamic URL Filtering" is not there

L2 Linker

The checkbox for "Dynamic URL Filtering" is supposed to be in the URL Filtering security profile.

I have a PA-4020 that does not show it. It's running 3.0.6.

I also have a PA-2050 which is running v3.0.5 and it does have the checkbox. Did the checkbox disappear in 3.0.6?

I checked a PA-4050 running 3.0.6 and it shows up fine. What browser

are you using?


FF 3.6. I just tried IE6, and same thing.

This firewall is being managed by Panorama, if it matters. I'm looking at Objects tab, Security Profiles/URL Filtering. This is only viewable on Panorama, not the firewall. Also if I define a new URL policy, the box is not there.

Confirmed. I just jumped onto a Panorama device and saw that the

dynamic URL filtering config is missing on the profile. The device UI

should have the box if you need to enable it, or you can do it by CLI.

I will open up a bug for this.


Hold on... I just checked the categories and it showed surfcontrol

categories. The dynamic URL filtering feature is only available

through BrightCloud. So if Panorama is set for Surfcontrol, you won't

see the dynamic URL filtering option. To set the database to

BrightCloud, use the CLI command:

> set url-database brightcloud

The device will ask you to reboot and after that the profile will show

the dynamic URL filtering option.


Thank you, that was it!
