Go into the settings for the URL Filtering engine and use the extended list feature in there.

Re: How to create a User-defined Category in Webgateway

Hello,

I think you are on a good track... basically what you do is:

- Take the URL (for example "mcafee.com")

- Put it into an extended list item like this: mcafee.com -> User-Defined-Category-100

- Configure the extended list to be used in the URL filter settings, as you described

From now on when someone accesses "mcafee.com" the category is no longer "Software/Hardware" but "User-Defined-Category-100". So your rule could look like

If URL.Categories at least one in list <My List> Then Stop Rule Set

In "My List" you add the category "User-Defined-Category-100".

So when someone accesses mcafee.com the URL filter lookup will result into "User-Defined-Category-100". If this category is in the list "My List" it will match the rule and the selected action is executed.

Best,

Andre
