How Does Only google play stroe block?


google-play, youtbe-base same Depends on google-base


If you block Google Play, YouTube is also blocked, which is embarrassing.


The client company is not using Global Protect.


Does anyone know how to solve it?

Hi. JayGolf.


yotube-base and google-play same Depends on google-base






Both are based on Google-base, which is a problem.

Sounds like how you're blocking applications is a bit muddled to be honest. If you're trying to block access to google-play you'd only block that one particular app-id, the depends-on criteria here is irrelevant. 

Have you actually tried blocking just google-play and found that YouTube is also not available, or are you basing this on an assumption on the depends-on criteria? 


I only blocked google-play, but I found out that youtbe is not available either.




I just validated this on a box running decryption and one that is not, in addition to a handful of my production boxes just to verify via the logs, but I can't replicate your reported behavior. Solely blocking google-play properly prevents access to the play store while allowing youtube to function without issue. 


What version of PAN-OS are you running? What's your Application and Threats version presently sitting at? What sort of device are you seeing this behavior on (Mac/Windows/Android/iOS)?
