The client configuration whitelist policy allows the use of wildcards for whitelisting, but I cannot find out if using them will be covering any URL formats. For example, to try and whitelist all government sites, I added the string:
I am assuming that we would have no problem if the user access the site https: // dvla.gov.uk, but what about more complex URLs formats like the ones below? Will they be whitelisted as well?
Many thanks in advance.
Thank you for posting this question.
Wildcard characters should still work in this scenario as it would exclude all subdomains mentioned prior to .gov.uk.
For additional information on URL list definitions, you may want to check out KB90846.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
Thanks for your reply, but I believe that the KB applies only to URLs under the Definition. What I was referring to, is the Whitelist URLs section that can be found under Policy Catalog > Data Loss Prevention 11.4 > Windows Client Configuration > Default Windows Client Configuration > Web Protection.
Thank you for the clarification.
The same wildcard logic would still apply under the Whitelist URLs section. Using * or ? would work as a wild card for any subdomain preceding .gov.uk.
