How to Block XYZ Website
Posted by Bill Cook on 09 December 2015 04:23 AM

You have 2 options when blocking web sites. The first will Block a single web site and the second will Block multiple web sites. To Block multiple web sites you will create a custom category listing all the web sites. This custom category can then be assigned to multiple groups. This prevents you from having to enter the list of Blocked web sites multiple times.


To Block a single web site do the following on the SWG.

  • Select “Controls” – “Block List” – “Group”
  • Select Group web site is to be Blocked for
  • Go to “Block List”
  • Type url of the Blocked web site
  • Check “Global” if site is to be Blocked for all groups


To create a list of multiple web sites to assign to 1 or more groups do the following on the SWG

  • Select “Controls” – “Block List” – “Manage Categories”
  • Select “Choose Category” for the category you want to create
  • Enter a unique name for the category
  • Type all the urls of the web sites
  • Select “Save” when the list is complete
  • Select “Group” custom category is to be assigned to
  • Select Custom Category under Custom Category Assignments
  • Select the button with the “>>” to move group or groups to “Chosen Category” list
  • Select “ Save”
