Custom URL category enforcement in URL column

 

I'm seeing some different behavior from our firewall on 8.0 code.  I've got a few rules setup wtih both security URL profiles, and the URL category column.  I've got a few custom URL categories made that match certain traffic.  What I'm finding is that the second I include a category in the URL column, even if my URL profile has the custom categories set to "NONE", the firewall is not matching expected rules.   We've verified that adding the custom categories to the ruleset does indeed solve the problem, and causes a match.  My question is, is there an option or way to have the URL Category column not consider the custom categories that are made? OR- is it in fact the case that once you add them into a security rule, that's it, you are now evaluating against all URL categories, in EVERY rule, even your custom built ones, if you've added anything into the URL Category Column .  We are looking at matching rules based on groups and URL's, and if a user is in multiple groups, they would never not match one of the rules.  URL categories would solve this matching problem, but not if creating a new custom category breaks other rules, or creates more work of manually adding that into a rule every time you create it.  Thoughts?
