How to specify specific users / groups in URL Filtering Policies

L1 Bithead

Hey guys!


We got a couple of 7050s in our Data Center with URL Filtering license, and we are planning to implement the URL Filtering feature. 


I understand first thing is to create the URL profile with the allowed / denied categories and attach it to the Security Policies that allow outbound Internet access.


But my concern is how to enable the use of specific users or groups to those security policies? 


I have enabled User-ID agent in my environment, the User-ID agent is retrieving the user to IP address mappings from the Domain Controllers, and my Firewall is already talking to the User-ID agent!


However, could anyone let me know if I still need to add some LDAP configuration to my Firewall? Or if I'm ready to implement Web Filtering to specific users.


Kind Regards!


Hey Valentine!


Thank you so much for the provided assistance, and documentation. I confirm now I'm able to create Security Policies based on username, and LDAP groups.




Kind Regards!

Those 7000 series firewalls can handle up to 10,000 LDAP groups so you should be good to go!

Is it correct if we assume the maximum number of groups we can add per virtual system (Group Include List and Custom Group tab combind) will still be 640 groups?

Like what you see?
