Device > Response Pages
Custom response pages are the web pages that display when a user tries to access a URL. You can provide a custom HTML message that is downloaded and displayed instead of the requested web page or file.
Each virtual system can have its own custom response pages.
Custom response pages larger than the maximum supported size are not decrypted or displayed to users. In PAN-OS 8.1.2 and earlier PAN-OS 8.1 releases, custom response pages on a decrypted site cannot exceed 8,191 bytes; the maximum size is increased to 17,999 bytes in PAN-OS 8.1.3 and later releases.
The following table describes the types of custom response pages that support customer messages.
