URL category shown in URL-Log is not equal as shown by command "test url ..."

L2 Linker



I have test a site for blocking via url-category. If I test the url via cli "test url cams.dnsalias.com" I got the category "dynamic-dns". But in the url-log I see "computer-and-internet-security" What's wrong?

Using pan-db? Clear url cache

Hello santonic,


I have done this, no changes. "dynamic-dns" is the right category. If I block these category by URL-filtering, requests are blocked, I see this action also in the log "URL Filtering", but as category was "computer-and-internet-security" displayed.


If try a search with filter "( category eq dynamic-dns )" nothing appears.


Thanks for your efforts


MfG Ralf
