We're in need of rewrite too. Any news of this or AppID's?

This feature should be there.

Is there anyone who can tell us if there will or will not be url re-write in the future, and if there is a possibility to define approximate time/date?

We need this function as well. Simply blocking the searches until the user manually switches settings will create more headaches, especially with our younger students.

Ryanlehms...There is a workaround using a squid proxy to perform the rewrite for safesearch & YouTube for Schools. The PA would use PBF to redirect these traffic to the squid proxy and the rewrite is done.  if interested, you can contact your Palo Alto SE to obtain the VM/ESX version of the squid proxy.  Thanks.

Does anyone have a sample url rewrite script for google search that works?
