Policies

With policies, you can control traffic using rules and advanced settings. The default set of policies describes some common restrictions.

To create a web policy, click Add Policy.

To expand/collapse any web policy, click (/) icon on the web policy.

Note
  • To use an existing policy as a template for a new policy, click the menu button () and select Clone.
  • The default web policy Default Policy will be expanded by default.

To manage policies, click and select Add Rule, Clone, Edit, Delete, Synchronize and Show Usage Refrences.

Rules

Rules specify the following criteria:
  • Users to whom the rule applies. These include groups and individual users.
  • Activities that describe the type of usage to restrict. These include user activities, Web categories, URL groups, file types, and dynamic categories.
  • Action (Allow, Warn or Block), HTTP Action and HTTPS Action to take when the firewall encounters traffic that matches the rule criteria.
  • Time Constraint to schedule the time period during which rule should be applied on the network.

The firewall evaluates rules from highest to lowest. For example, a rule that allows all traffic that precedes a rule that restricts a specific type of traffic takes precedence and the subsequent rule is ignored.

Click on toggle switch next to Constraints section list to enable/disable the rule.

To manage rules, click the menu button () for any rule and select Add Rule Above, Add Rule Below, Clone Rule Above, Clone Rule Below or Delete.
