Global Allow List from GAT Shield #
GAT Shield has a Global allow list that will override URLs defined in Site Access Control rules.
This will be helpful when Admin wants to allow a specific page that is being blocked by Shield – Site access control rules.
To apply this we need to navigate to GAT Shield.
Navigate to GAT Shield #
Under configuration click on Site Access Control tab
Navigate to Site Access Control #
Site Access Control is where Admin can set up a block list of pages that will be blocked.
They can be manually added or System defined Site access categories used.
When the page is blocked, the users where the rule is applied will not be able to open the sites
Global Allow List #
However the Global Allow list – will overwrite the blocklists and allow the set URLs to be opened.
To do so open the Config tab in Site Access control
Two options under Global Allow List #
- IP Blocking
- Global allow list
In Global Allow list admin will have the options to add different entry types.
- Given URL only
- Given IP only
- Given URL and descendants
- Regular expressions
Click on Add entry and select Allow list entry type
Choose any of the options
Enter the URL or regular expression #
Then in Allow list entry – enter the URL or regular expression and click on Save.
The saved Global allowed list sites will be displayed.
How does the Rule Work? #
The rule works in this way.
The webpages in Site Access Control – that are blocklisted will be blocked.
But the added URLs added in the Global Allow list will be allowed to be opened.
