Different block pages based on policy

Is there no way to have different block pages appear per policy ? We have distint needs for a few different groups of users. We need one URL block page to come up when one policy is triggered and a different block page when another policy is triggered. Is this possible ? If not, why ? Any plans to make this happen ? Any hacks that are possible ? Can I take the block and continue category and break the continue piece and use that as a second block page ?

Before you tell me to open a case I already did.

Hello,

As you already know, you can only have one block page per VSYS.  That said, you can customize the block page so that it displays a different message depending on what rule was triggered, by using the <rulename> variable.  You can find more information regarding customizing block pages here:

Hope this helps,

Hi Doris,

   In researching Application Response/Block Page criteria and parameters ... I found your answer ... Is there an knowledge base article that defines all the variables and which pages the variables are functional for?

Thanks

Art

P.s. I just checked the PDF doc on custominzing block pages (just in case I missed it :smileyhappy: ) but no mention of <rulename>.

Reference:

examples for customizing the block pages, such as the example to the right.

Hi Art,

I'll work with the team to have the docs updated.

Thanks,
