GAT Shield – Sites Access control, provides Admins the ability to block access to the top root domain like example.com but they can allow access to a sub-domain like west.example.com or east.example.com via the Allow List functionality.
To get started
- Launch the GAT Shield console and enter the Site Access Control area.
- Create a rule to block a domain.
- Once the Site rule is created, activate it by selecting the arrow and moving the rule to the Active Site Access rules.
- When we select the arrow we are prompted to a window to select the scope for this rule. An admin can select time restrictions, leave a warning message to the users, select a scope (the scope can be Chrome device only) and save.
- The rule will be active and moved to Active Sites Access rules and users will be blocked from accessing the domain you specified.
- In the same way, you can create an Allow list to allow a subdomain.
- Make sure to activate this category once it’s created.
- Allow List take precedence over a Block List.
