Configuring the Global Block List Rule Set

When the web policy is applied to a web request, the Global Block Rule Set is the first rule set applied.

IMPORTANT: When a request is blocked, all further rule processing stops.

To configure Global Block Lists:

  1. Go to Policy > Web Policy > Policy. 
  2. In the Policy Tree, select Global Block > Global Block Lists.
  3. Optionally configure criteria to limit the scope of this rule set.
  4. Select the Global Block Rules that you want enabled:
    • Domains Block List. Blocks web requests sent to the domains in this list.

    • Connection IPs Block List. Blocks web requests sent from the connection IP addresses in this list.
      The connection IP is the IP address of the firewall or other device between your organization's network and the cloud (your public IP address).

    • Client IPs Block List. Blocks web requests sent from the client IP addresses in this list.

    • Destination IPs Block List. Blocks web requests sent to the IP addresses in this list.

    • User Groups Block List. Blocks web requests sent by users who are members of the groups in this list.

    • User Names Block List. Blocks web requests sent by users having the user names in this list.

    • Processes. Blocks web requests sent from the process names in this list.

  5. Configure the lists associated with the rules as needed.

Changes to the policy tree, rule sets, or rules are automatically saved locally. You can publish them to the cloud now or keep working and publish later.
