Configuring the Global Bypass Lists Rule Set

The Global Bypass Rule Set  allows you to configure the lists of items that are allowed to bypass filtering.
When these rules are applied to a web request and the request is allowed, all further rule processing stops.

  1. Go to Policy > Web Policy > Policy.
  2. In the Policy Tree, select Global Bypass > Global Bypass Lists.

  3. Optionally configure criteria to limit the scope of this rule set.

  4. Select the Global Bypass Lists Rules that you want enabled. Choose one of the following:

    • Domains Bypass. Allows web requests sent to the domains in this list to bypass filtering.

    • Connection IPs Bypass. Allows web requests sent from the connection IP addresses in this list to bypass filtering. 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 Bypass. Allows web requests sent from the client IP addresses in this list to bypass filtering.

    • Destination IPs Bypass. Allows web requests sent to the IP addresses in this list to bypass filtering.

    • User Groups Bypass. Allows web requests sent by users who are members of the groups in this list to bypass filtering.

    • User Names Bypass. Allows web requests sent by users having the user names in this list to bypass filtering.

    • Processes Bypass. Allows web requests sent from the process names in this list to bypass filtering.

  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.
