Issue/Introduction

SG have information for user agent defined for well known browsers such as Microsoft IE, Chrome, Firefox, Netscape, Opera and Safari. However, it doesn't include the Microsoft Edge browser. The customer would like to add it into the trusted source browser in the SG.

Cause

Since Microsoft Edge browser is relatively new, and it has not been defined yet in the SG by default.

Environment

You would like to define a browser user agent for matching new browser "Microsoft Edge" into the SG/WSS UPE as a source object.

Resolution

Please create an source object for "Request Header" with RegEx "^Mozilla\/\d+\..*Edge\/\d+.\d+$":

Example for Web Access Layer allow rules:
VPM:



CPL code:

<Proxy>
request.header.User-Agent="^Mozilla\/\d+\..*Edge\/\d+.\d+$" Allow
Notes:
1. WSS Cloud and Transparent proxy need to have the SSL Intercept enabled to allow user agent visibility to SG/WSS for HTTPS/SSL requests.
2. For WSS, the custom user agent can only be done through MC UPE "Universal Policy Enforcement".
