Action on License Expiration
If you are using the BrightCloud database, you can configure the action to take if the URL filtering license expires:
If the license expires for PAN-DB:
Always renew your license in time to ensure network security.
You can exclude specific websites from URL category enforcement in order to enforce that website separately from the associated URL category. Add sites you want to always allow to the Allow List, and add sites to the Block List that you block, alert on, password protect, or warn users against accessing.
Enter one IP address or URL on each line of the block or allow list, and you can use wildcards to easily configure a single entry to match to multiple website subdomains and pages, without having to specify each exact subdomain or page.
For guidelines on using adding URL entries to the block and allow lists, especially on how to most effectively use wildcards, review URL Category Exception Lists.
Do not add an entry with consecutive asterisk (*) wildcards or nine or more consecutive caret (^) wildcards—entries like these can negatively impact firewall performance.
For example, do not add the entry mail.*.*.com; instead, enter either mail.*.com or mail.^.^.com. Note that an entry like mail.*.com matches to a greater number of sites than mail.^.^.com; mail.*.com matches to sites with any number of subdomains and mail.^.^.com matches to sites with exactly two subdomains.
For details on creating Wildcard entries, see wildcard guidelines and examples.
