show security utm web-filtering category base-filter



Show the list of predefined base filters. A base filter is an object that contains a category-action pair for all categories defined in the category file. A base filter is a structured object, and is defined with the help of a filter name and an array of category-action pairs. Each Enhanced Web Filtering (EWF) category has a default action in a base filter, which is attached to the user profile to act as a backup filter. If the categories are not configured in the user profile, the base filter takes the action. Junos OS Release 17.4R1 also supports online upgradation of base filters.
