Response Page for virus (e.g. Eicar test) when using SSL inspection

Not applicable

As the title suggests, I'm getting to grips with SSL decryption (which is working fine). We use a response pages for a virus notices and I'm testing the eicar site (Download ° EICAR - European Expert Group for IT-Security). Over HTTPS the 'virus' is blocked however I don't receive a response page, whereas I do for HTTP. I have tried having a play with the the options here (though not quite the same) How to Configure the Palo Alto Networks Device to Serve a URL Response page Over an HTTPS Session wi... but no joy.

Reading posts on here it's similar to this problem (No Malware Block Page When Using SSL Decryption), but any advice would be gratefully received. I'm sure I'm missing something simple.

PanOS 4.1.14 - PA200.

I am trying to replicate this issue on 5.0.7 to see what behavior I get.
