Issue/Introduction

Local DB Category List not matching the Sub-Domain when using Domain in a second Cateogry list and more specific Sub-Domain and/or Domain is listed already in another Category List on ProxySG/Advanced Secure Gateway (ASG)

Cause

ProxySG/ASG will use and see only the more Specific match defined in any Category List


EXAMPLE:
wanting a match for mail.google.com

define category CATEGORYLIST1
google.com
end

define category  CATEGORYLIST2
google.com
mail.google.com
end

ProxySG/ASG will only see and match on CATEGORYLIST2 as it contians the more specific match

Environment

The Local DB contains more than 1 Category List.
Adding domain only to first Category List
The sub-domain and domain are listed in a second Category already.
 

Resolution

To match as well on CATEGORYLIST1 and still match on CATEGORYLIST2 it is needed to make the more specific match part of the other list as well


EXAMPLE:
wanting a match for mail.google.com

define category CATEGORYLIST1
google.com
mail.google.com
end

define category  CATEGORYLIST2
google.com
mail.google.com
end

ProxySG/ASG will now match Both Category Lists with the more specific match.
