Enter a unique string that must begin with an alphanumeric character and can include colons, periods, dashes, and underscores; no spaces allowed; 63-character maximum.


Enter a description for your custom feed; maximum length is 1,024 characters. You should make this description as useful as possible for all administrators.


Select one of the following:

  • Dynamic—A dynamic address entry provides dynamic IP address information to security policies. A dynamic address is a group of IP addresses, not just a single IP prefix, that can be imported from external sources. These IP addresses are for specific domains or for entities that have a common attribute such as a particular undesired location that poses a threat. You can then configure security policies to use the dynamic addresses within a security policy
  • Whitelist—A whitelist contains known trusted IP addresses, URLs, and domains. Content downloaded from locations on the whitelist does not have to be inspected for malware.
  • Blacklist—A blacklist contains known untrusted IP addresses, URLs, and domains. Access to locations on the blacklist is blocked, and therefore no content can be downloaded from those sites.


Enter an IPv4 single address, address range, or subnet using the following syntax:

Single Address:

Address Range:
