    1. URL to download
      • For Legacy Workflow: Set this to the Cloud Connector URL, visible in the Cloud Connector user interface, http://<enterprise-connector-hostname>:8443/ or http://<enterprise-connector-ip>:8443/custom 
      • For Revised Workflow (New MVISION Cloud version 4.2.0.1 or above): From the Firewall Proxy Integration page in the MVISION Cloud dashboard, use the URL as published.
    2. List content update. Daily at 12:00 am.
    3. Leave the rest of the fields in the default settings.
  8. Click OK to close the window.
  9. Click OK again.
  10. Expand the Subscribed list to confirm that the MVISION Cloud Connector list now displays in the list.
  11. Click the Rules tab, highlight the HTTP or port 80 traffic rule, and edit it.
  12. In the criteria select if this criteria is matched and URL is in list. Then select the list you added Step 3, for example, MVISION Cloud Connector.
  13. On the Action tab, select Redirect to go to your coaching splash page, for example, http://internalnotice.company.com/policy.html
  14. Click OK.

This should now redirect all URLs that were sent to Cloud Connector from the MVISION Cloud dashboard.
