Re-categorize URL

Hi guys how are you?

I need help.

How do I re-categorize a URL?

I tried to do it as follows:

Policy --> Settings --> URL Filter --> Default
















Rule Sets --> Add Rule...


When selecting List_Extended, I cannot select the URL.Categories option.


The idea is for the user to access * * and the URL to be categorized in User defined category 20.


Thank You.

Re: Re-categorize URL



Hope you are doing well.


Also you need to remove 'https:// from the start of the URL in the extended list entry.


For now URL Filter only treats URLs in 'URL.Host' format as valid, so these work:


But these do not:



We already have a PER for checks on input to lists.
