Hierarchy Level


Use URL pattern lists to create Custom URL category lists. These are lists of patterns that bypass scanning.


Custom category does not take precedence over predefined categories when it has the same name as one of the predefined categories. We do not recommend having a custom category name be the same as the predefined category name.


  • object-name—Name of the URL category-list object.

  • value value—Value of the URL category-list object. You can configure multiple values separated by spaces and enclosed in square brackets.

Required Privilege Level
