    WebGateway : Filter https-URL by URL-Path

    pny

      Hi,

      one of our customers wants youtube completely blocked, execpt for some disclamiers.

       

      So what they only want to allow access to the following URLs :

       

      https://www.youtube.com/copright 

      https://www.youtube.com/user/copyright

       

      Now when i try to define a "URL and Application Filtering Rule" with Regular Expression and/or GLOB Expressions it never matches that Rule.

       

      When i test the Expression (either regex or glob) against the mentioned URL's they match. So i'm certain it's not a matching isssue.

      When i enter the domain (youtube.com) in a String-type List instead of a Wildcard Expression-type List, all of youtube.com is allowed. The webgate still does not respect the URL-Path.

       

      In Troubleshooting => Ruletracing all i can see is the Host-Part of the URL like https://www.youtube.com but never the Path-Part of the URL eg. "/copyright".

      So the Question is, how can i allow or deny access to a HTTPS-URL, based on the URL-Path ?

       

      Since we intercept all SSL Traffic, the Webgateway should be able to see the URL path, right ?

       

      Any input is greatly appreciated

       

      Regards,

      Philipp
