Clone URL Filtering failed

L1 Bithead

I want to clone an URL Filtering object, but this failed with:

1- Failed to clone "URL Filtering object".  -> allow 'Custom URL Category' is not a valid reference

What's wrong?

Model PA-3020

Software version 5.0.11

can you share the system log. or screenshot.



Here are two screenshots.



Here the URL Profil:

and the Custom URL Category:

maybe issue is related to vsys ?

I've been trying to figure this out, by testing a few things on my end..

I created a custom URL profile, with the same name, to see if maybe any characters (like dashes) were messing with it, but it worked just fine on my end...

Could you try creating another custom URL category, with a different name, add it to the URL Filtering profile and try to clone it then? I'd like to see if the issue is specifically with the custom URL category, or if it acts the same.

Also, please confirm that you are in the correct vsys and all the correct objects you created are appearing in the same vsys where you are attempting to make this clone/change.

Let us know,
