About the Redirect Profiles Page

To access this page, click Configure>Application Firewall Policy>Redirect Profiles.

You can create a redirect profile to provide a reason for the policy action or to redirect the user request to an informative webpage. After you configure the redirect profiles for a policy, when a policy blocks HTTP or HTTPS traffic with a deny or reject action, a message or redirect URL is sent to the user. You can customize the redirect action by adding the text message or specify the URL to which the user is redirected. When the redirect message option is specified, a message notifies the user that the traffic has been blocked and also the reason for blocking the traffic.
