Create a Custom URL Category
You can create a custom URL Filtering object to specify exceptions to URL category enforcement, and to create a custom URL category based on multiple URL categories:
- Define exceptions to URL category enforcement—Create a custom list of URLs that you want to use as match criteria in a security policy rule. This is a good way to specify exceptions to URL categories, where you’d like to enforce specific URLs differently than the URL category to which they belong.
- Define a custom URL category based on multiple PAN-DB categories—This allows you to target enforcement for websites that match a set of categories. The website or page must matchallthe categories defined as part of the custom category.
Follow these steps to create a custom URL category, and define how you’d like the firewall to enforce the custom URL category:

After setting up the custom category, go directly to the Security policy rule to which you want to add the custom URL category ().
