What is the "Allow" action in Data Filtering log for Wildfire?

L2 Linker



I understand what forward, upload, and upload skip mean in the Data Filtering logs for wildfire. But some files I see the Action listed as "Allow".  What does this mean exactly? I've been searching for an hour and can't find any reference to that action.

Allow means the file was allowed by policy and not flagged to be forwarded to wildfire. The file was clean.

I believe it relates to the Action or the Wildfire Action column in your AntiVirus policy.  I remember being confused by that, too.
