How to Block specific HTTPS Sites?

L1 Bithead



I'm struggling to block some internal https sites.


I have to block various sites/urls of a server from a specific zone, while I have to keep some others open 

The urls look like:



Now I have to block application1 to application 4, while keeping 5 to xx open. Btw I dont know how many applications there are on this host, because it is managed by another team.


So the goal is to keep the access open and block specific application-urls


What I have done so far and didnt work out:

Created a custom URL category with the urls to block in it and added it to a deny rule

Created an URL Filter setting all categories to allow and added the urls to the block list


Tried various url substrings:





Do you have any ideas how to do that?


Kind regards,

Are you decrypting HTTPS traffic, because if not then 'abandon all hope ye who enter here'. 

Of course I have an decryption policy otherwise I couldnt check the full url.

kind regards,



That's what I wanted to check, some thing that the firewall can see the full URL regardless of whether or not they decrypt the traffic. 



thanks for the help! Maybe I was working too much today 🙂 Found the fault, regardless it was mine - there was a typo in the fqdn of the object....


kind reagards,




I was trying to think of reasons why it wasn't working and couldn't really come up with any. Glad that you found the typo!
