URL Override is missing

L1 Bithead



I just upgraded to PAN-OS 9.0.0 succesfully, but I cannot find the URL Override setting? Does anyone know where is it located?

It hasn't changed from 8.1 to 9.0, unless this isn't what you're referring to.

Objects > Security Profiles > URL Filtering > {profile-name} > Pre-Defined Categories > Set any category to "Override":

If you are referring to the Allow and Block overrides that used to be in the URL Filtering profile, those have been removed. You now have to create a custom URL category for each and then set each category to Allow or Block in the URL Filtering profile, 


When I upgraded my firewall to 9.0 it automatically moved my whitelist URLs to a custom list and set it to allow.



Yep, I just dealt with the mess that created. 


It will automatically yank out your custom blocks and allows from each profile and create custom categories from these, you will then need to clean up the names, and the actions for each. I am left wondering, since these now appear in every URL filtering profile instead of specific to each one that you setup how to best handle custom allows and denies per URL profile. I guess you could set the ones you don't want to block except for in the profile you want to allow them... just seems a bit of a mess it was easy and straight forward with adding things to the profile itself... now they are all over all of your profiles which may create some duplication and extra work to clean up
