how to unblock this sub-url?

L4 Transporter

I have a URL filtering list with * in custom blocklist. but I want to allow one specific sub-url .

added the sub-url to the custome allow list but didn't work. I'm assuming because of the url filtering order of preference(i.e blockl list first).how can I get this working without creating another security policy?

@Raido_Rattameister @MickBall @OtakarKlier  Thank you for the responses. I had to put in a decryption rule that decrypts shareware and freeware category and then in another sec policy I have listed the custom url category with* and set it to allow.

I was not aware that the "block list" overides the "allow list".....


I just assumed that the allow should contain   **



if not then maybe....


you could add a new custom object url category called Github with * as the site,


then you could set this to "block" in your url filtering profile and add the overide **, you can then remove the custom block.

There is a difference between * and * is for anything preceeding the doimain such as www., ftp, etc. To only allow the site, just enter that URL into your allow list. Then use a predifened catagory to block github, ie shareware-and-freeware = Blocked


Hope that helps.

@OtakarKlier thanks for the info...


would   allow access to  or would it need to be:-* 


no, let me ask that again.....


does    allow anything after the /abc or do i need the /* for this...

As step 1 you need to enable ssl decryption to start this working.
