Github-allow access to specific repository

How do I block all Github but allow access to a specific repository? For eg. I want to allow and block all github using a single URL filtering policy. How can I do that? 


I added* to custom URL list and set it to block.Created another security policy with a custom URL list containing the specific github page and set the action to allow. I was able to get to the page but the contents inside the page are incomplete. I am showing github pages render content from different pages like, etc. 

How can I keep up with the change in future if I allow the extra sites for now? 

Is there are any best way I can achieve this?

Hi @SThatipelly ,


I don't see a way to have this automated. 

I can only think about making the changes manually.

You may try making custom app-id signature for a REFERER Header. The idea is if the request for example for  was made by the main URL then to allow it. If the user tries to access directly they should be blocked.
