About the Category Update Page
To access this page, click Configure > UTM Policy > Category Update.
Use the Category Update page to download and install a URL category dynamically. You can download the Websense Enhanced Web Filtering category version from the category download site at https://update.juniper-updates.net and install it without upgrading Security Director. Websense occasionally releases new Enhanced Web Filtering categories. The category list is available in a file in JSON format. It supports a predefined base filter and all categories have default actions in the base filter. The base filter can be attached to a user profile, which acts like a backup filter. The base filter takes action for the categories that are not configured in a user profile.
The category file is downloaded into Junos Space server in the following ways:
Security Director automatically downloads the category file from the category download site for the first time, if there is no category version available.
You can download required version or latest version of category file.
You can upload category file into Junos Space server. This is useful when you do not have internet connection to the Junos Space server.
Maximum available Websense categories are 1000.
Maximum available base filters are 16.
