On the Logging & Reporting > Web Protection > Departments page you can group users or hosts and networks to virtual departments. Those departments can then be used to filter web usage reports or search engine reports.

To create a department, proceed as follows:

  1. On the Departments tab, click New Department.

    The Add Department dialog box opens.

  2. Enter a name.

    In the Name field, enter a descriptive name for the department.

  3. Add users or hosts/networks.

    A department definition can only contain users or hosts/networks, not both types at the same time.

    • Users: Add one or more users to the box who should be part of this department.
    • Hosts/Networks: Add one or more hosts or networks to the box which should be part of this department.

    Comment (optional): Add a description or other information.

  4. Click Save.

    The new department appears on the Departments list.

To either edit, delete, or clone a department click the corresponding buttons.

For information on usage of departments please see sections Web Usage Report and Search Engine Report.
