Security rule with URL category mixed up

L0 Member



We have a weird rule in our Security Rules list.


Basically it's allowing any to any with some specific applications, but also a custom URL Category in "Service/URL Category" tab.


So normally it should allow only the traffic hitting the URLS in this category.


But it's allowing all the traffic actually that is hitting the specific applications specified instead of only the custom URL category, URL list.


Could you please tell me if it's because on the "Actions" tab, in "Profile settings" then Group Profile we have also a group selected, that is itself containing already url filter list ? This URLs filter list is also containing the same custom URL Category list, and others categories that are allowing almost all excepting few URLS.
