How to disable threatID for defined IP addresses


I would like to disable one threatID for specific sources/destinations (e.g. when source or destination is file sharing server), but I would like to enable it for all other users and/or addresses. Is it possible to do that?

Thank you and best regards,

Hi Maja,

Right now, you have to create a different firewall rule for the specific source and destination IPs and apply a different threat profile with an exception for the particular threatID in order to provide different signature coverage for them. There is no way to create a threat exception for specified IP addresses only, just a threat exception for a specific threat profile.
