how to remove a custom url category from url filtering profile

Not applicable

HI,

how can i remove a custom url category from url filtering profile. it seems that by default, any custom url you create will be listed in the url filtering profile in an alphabetic order.

if i have created specific custom urls for different ad groups, but the traffic matches the first possible custom url, and hence you cannot even block a custom url, as anything common amongst them will be denied.

Cheers

Bhav

Hi Bhav,

I think the only way to remove a custom-url-category from a url-filtering-profile is to remove it altogether.  (See below)

If I'm understanding your situation correctly then in addition to creating a custom-url-category for each AD group you also need to create a common custom-url-category for the sites you want to allow for all AD groups.  This can then be set to allow in each of your AD group specific url-filtering-profiles.

Removing custom-url-category

First of all, issue the command:

     delete profiles custom-url-category yoururlcategory

This will probably fail but will list the url-filtering-profiles the custom-url-category is used in.

Once you know this, make a note of the action (block, alert etc) against the custom-url-category in each url-filtering-profile then run the folowing command for each url-filtering-profile

     delete profiles url-filtering yoururlfilteringprofile youraction yoururlcategory

Then issue the delete command again

     delete profiles custom-url-category yoururlcategory

For example

     delete profile url-filtering normal-users alert workrelatedsites

     delete profile url-filtering super-users allow workrelatedsites

     delete profile custom-url-category workrelatedsites

Hope this helps

Regards,

Dave
