Import URL Patterns from a CSV File

You can import multiple allowed or blocked URL patterns from a CSV file. This enables you to manage large-scale networks more efficiently, accurately, and consistently.

  1. Go to Shared Services > Objects > URL Patterns.
    The URL Patterns page is displayed.
  2. Click More > Import URL Patterns from CSV File.
    The Import URL Patterns from CSV page is displayed.
  3. Click Download CSV template.
    The CSV template file is downloaded to your computer.
  4. In the downloaded file, enter the name, description, and URL patterns that must be allowed or blocked.
  5. In the Import URL Patterns from CSV page, click Browse, select the file, and then click Upload.
    • Before the data is imported from the CSV file, the data is analyzed. If the name or URL pattern is missing in a row, an error message is displayed. A column is added in the CSV file with information about the error against the corresponding entry.
    • If no errors are detected in the CSV file, the file is uploaded to import the data.
  6. If an error is detected, download the updated CSV file, fix the errors, and then upload the file again.
    • If the imported data contain the same name as existing URL patterns or IP addresses but different values, the Conflict Resolution table is displayed with the list of conflicts.

    • If no conflicts are detected, the data is imported.

  7. If the Conflict Resolution table is displayed, select one of the following options to resolve the conflict between the imported and existing data:
    • Keep existing: If you select to keep the existing data, a tick mark identifies the values of the data that will not be imported.
    • Create new object
    • Overwrite with imported value: If you select to overwrite the existing data, a tick mark identifies the data that will overwrite the values of the existing data.

    You can also select different resolution options from the Action column drop-down list of each row of conflicting data

  8. Click OK.
    All data conflicts is resolved based on the actions you select, and the data is imported from the CSV file and displayed on the URL Patterns page.
