    A block page does not have the context to modify any of the static elements inside of a list in the policy.

     

    The only thing you can do is have PDStorage integrated into your policy. You can have a string/wildcard value append to a PDStorage list and use that list in subsequent policy. However PDstorage is temporary and will expire/delete after a period of time. Plus, what's to say that a user couldn't just enter * into a white list and go anywhere?

     

    A better solution might be to develop an internal web application on an intranet site and have users edit lists there. Then MWG can use a subscribed list to pull the values and use them in a policy. You could then have syntax and validation of the entries before they get added to the list for consumption.

    I think you are confusing subscribed list with External List. They are similar but have different formats and uses.

     

    A subscribed list must have an entry on the first line that identifies the list type:

    type=string
    type=iprange
    type=regex
    etc...

     

     

    And the file looks something like this. Comments optional, but both fields must be "quoted" when you use comments.

    With a configuration of something like this:

    And a result of something like this:

    And you use it like any other list:
