How to limit youtube usage

We are using PA-3050 and would like to know how to limit Youtube usage to a certain Active Directory group (students) to 200mb per day.

 

Please outline the steps.

@FarzanaMustafa,

The firewall isn't actually capable of doing this at the moment natively, but I believe a feature request that you could reach out to your SE and have them add your vote to.

You can do this through extensive scripting and use of the API, but you are essentially just using information gathered from the firewall to update the firewall in an automated nature.

Hello,

Another option could be to use QoS to limit the bandwidth used by that application so it becomes unbearable so students wont use it?

 

Just a thought.

I know Demisto can limit it. But, unsure if there is a feature in the firewall.

@Sailesh_Aryal,

Demisto as in Palo's SOAR software? I'd be rather interested to see any playbooks that would actually do this from Demisto if you know of any examples that are published anywhere; while its certainly possible someone took the time to build one out, Demisto isn't really meant for anything like this.
