Objects > Custom Objects > URL Category
Use the custom URL category page to create your custom list of URLs and use it in a URL filtering profile or as match criteria in policy rules. In a custom URL category, you can add URL entries individually, or import a text file that contains a list of URLs.
URL entries added to custom categories are case insensitive.
The following table describes the custom URL settings:
Custom URL Category Settings
Enter a name to identify the custom URL category (up to 31 characters). This name displays in the category list when defining URL filtering policies and in the match criteria for URL categories in policy rules. The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Enter a description for the URL category (up to 255 characters).
Select this option if you want the URL category to be available to:
Disable override (Panorama only)
Select this option to prevent administrators from overriding the settings of this custom URL object in device groups that inherit the object. This selection is cleared by default, which means administrators can override the settings for any device group that inherits the object.
To delete a custom category that you have used in a URL filtering profile, you must set the action to None before you can delete the custom category. See Category actions in Objects > Security Profiles > URL Filtering.
