You can request a URL category change on the firewall
or from Palo Alto Networks Test A Site service.
If you think that a URL is
not categorized accurately, you can request for us to categorize
it differently. Submit a change request directly in the firewall,
or use Test A Site. A change
request triggers PAN-DB—the URL Filtering cloud—to do an immediate
analysis of the URL for which you’re suggesting a category change.
If PAN-DB validates that the new category suggestion is accurate,
the change request is approved. If PAN-DB does not find the new
category suggestion to be accurate, the change request is then reviewed
by human editors from the Palo Alto Networks threat research and
data science teams.
After you’ve submitted
a change request, you’ll receive an email from us confirming that
