Permit related/inherited applications

L0 Member


I am looking to build a particular security policy where *all* web browsing is permitted, including any applications that the session gets transitioned to as a a result of App-ID figuring it out.  For example, a session may start out as a "web-browsing" application but then turn into a "google-maps" application as App-ID figures out what the user is trying to do.  I would like to permit *anything* that begins it's life as there a way to do this with Application groups/filters, or do I have to bite the bullet, mark the application in my security policy as "Any", and set the service field of the policy to "service-http" and "service-https"?

My search-fu is not as honed this morning, so I apologize if this has already been answered.  Thanks in advance!

Few methods to achieve this have been discussed in the  thread added below such as :

Creating an App-Group [( Application Filter for category General-Internet >technology >Characteristic -Widely Used Browser Based ) + (Application -ssl)]

But I think allowing app-any  and services- service-http and https would be the best bet.

Application filter will be best bet.

You can also allow app 'any' port '80' '443' like traditional port based firewall but it will allow all traffic on selected ports.

If you need help with custom app discussed in other thread, you can check at Dev center community.
