Custom URL Categories

Custom URL categories are groups of arbitrary URLs that can be created on the WSA to define policy. If you have onboarded a WSA with existing policies, all of the custom URL categories you created on the WSA will be brought into CDO, and you will be able to search for them and apply policies that apply to all of the URLs in the category. For example, if the onboarded WSA has a custom URL category called British Websites that includes the URLs,, and, you can use CDO's Application Policy Management page to block access to all the URLs in this category for a given identity profile by searching for British News Websites.

CDO does not support creating new custom URL categories or editing and deleting existing custom URL categories.
