Using application categories in security rules.

Not applicable

Using application categories in security rules.

Hi all,

I am in the process of configuring security rules to allow some applications for a particular user group, These applications I am taking from the app category "internet" & "Media", (131 applications in total) this I could do by adding these applications to a application group and applying it to the rule. 

In the same application group I wanted to allow access to all applications under the category "collaboration" & "business-system" but I don't see a away to add a full application category. My question is, is it possible to add an application category to a application group or do I need to add each application that I want to allow, and if it is possible is there and tech docs to explain the procedure to do this.

Re: Using application categories in security rules.


just create a application filter with both "collaboration" & "business-system" selected.

add this application filter to your application group.

kind regards
