Safe Search Enforcement - Office Clip Art

I don't know if anybody else has seen this, but we have safe search enforcement turned on (and I don't plan on turning it off) and Microsoft has moved all the clip art to Bing. When you try to add clip art from within MS Word and search for "cat" the search gets blocked at the PA and none of the thumbnails are returned. It makes sense because Word is making a search directly to and "strict" search is not turned on. It doesn't matter if I have IE running and turned strict search on at bing, so still get blocked because Word seems like it's search directly and is not leveraging IE.


I don't know if there is really an answer besides turning off safe search enforcement, but I figured I'd see if anybody else has seen this and how they dealt with it. We're a K-12 school.

Hi bbilut,


do you perhaps have pcap of such query (if not, can you collect it?) I think you can craft a custom app and allow it in a separate security policy based on regex of the URL requested. If you can collect pcap you can probably work it out, and if you need help let us see the example of the get request.
