URL filtering sequence in Panos 9.0

We are going to upgrade the PAN NGFW from 8.1 to 9.0

I have below queries

case 1 : if we have below setting in URL filtering profile will be able to block facebook.com ?

custom category_block* - facebook.com - block

custom category_allow* - facebook.com - allow

predefined category - social networking  - block

 

case 2 : if we have below setting in URL filtering profile will be able to block facebook.com ?

custom category_block* - facebook.com - block

predefined category - social networking  - allow

 

case 3 : if we have below setting in URL filtering profile will be able to block facebook.com ?

custom category_allow* - facebook.com - allow

predefined category - social networking  - block

 

case 4 : if we have below setting in URL filtering profile will be able to block facebook.com ?

custom category_block* - facebook.com - block

custom category_allow* - facebook.com - allow

predefined category - social networking  - allow

 

I am asking this query because behavior is changed for url filtering override in PANos 9.0

Hello,

Are you trying to block facebook? If yes then remember that the custom URL categories work ahead of the predefined ones.
