Create Whitelist

A whitelist allows you to allow access to specific website while the category the URL represents is unallowed. For example, while pornography is a blocked category, you can use the whitelist to allow access to playboy.com since there are no nude photographs on its front page. You can only create a whitelist if the default proxy policy is set to deny.

  1. From the Management Console, select Configuration > Policy > Visual Policy Manager > Launch. The visual policy dialogue displays.
  2. Select Policy > Add Web Access Layer. Give the web access layer a unique name. For example "Web Access Exceptions.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Click Add a Rule.
  5. Right click the Destination column within the rule and select Set.
  6. Click New, and select Request URL Category.

You can only create a whitelist if the default proxy policy is set to deny.
