Web Protection: Global URL Blacklist & Whitelist For All Profiles
It would be nice if we could create for the blocking a group of URLs, which may be analogous to the block "URL Filtering Categories" in the "Filter Actions". For example, the URL's to be blocked must not enter in every profile under blacklist.
Currently under web security there is no way to add a master block or allow list. You have to create one for each filter action.
Please note that there is a Feature Request showing another approach to this subject - adding the websites to own or existing categories:
It´s a very good idea! I need this feature too. If you have some filter actions and many URL`s to block for all(!), you have to enter the list often and ANY addition! A lot of work.
This global lists are much better. Only one for all. In the filter action you can select it. Smart and modular. And I think it is easy to install it into UTM 9. ;-)
I think the globals get run first, the the proxy profiles. I whitelisted a bunch of urls and the authenticated web profile (Transparent with AD auth) never prompts for these sites.
