Re: Partly allow Google Docs ?

Shouldn't we be able to use the new Application Filter feature for this? Oh wait... it contains applications but no application functions yet. SCNR

Re: Partly allow Google Docs ?

Is the goal to block most of Google Docs or to block uploads to Google Docs?

Don't have specific insight on the former, but have successfully implemented a rule set that blocks both file uploads and document creation while permitting downloads -- so if that's what you're looking for, it's probably possible.

Re: Partly allow Google Docs ?

Hi folks,

thanks for help. I will verify our current SSL scanner (we used the default).

We do block Google Docs via category and it works OK. The goal is to bypass such category filter only for specific URL ie. our bussiness partner stores some data to GD, we should allow his specific URL to open even category blocking is still in place.

I hope I will have some more time to dive into this issue in lab 🙂

Have a nice day.

Re: Partly allow Google Docs ?

Ok, so after many hours/days I gave it up. Google Drive is so complex with so many JS and redirection sites + logins ...

I am not able to isolate all only basic needed subsites. We agreed with company security dept. to allow whole GD only for specific users via Active Directory group membership.

Strange because we can select only specific video files from Youtube ...

Maybe I will return to this topis next year during some spare time.
