On August 31, 2021, a test database was made available for Intelligence Services and WebFilter (formerly Blue Coat Intelligence Services and Blue Coat WebFilter) for customers to test policies against the new and renamed categories that are part of the WebFilter URL category update that is scheduled to become effective on October 12, 2021. The database will contain the categories as they will appear when the update is fully released on October 12th along with a single test URL for each category. The URLs categorized in the database are live and serve content that is clearly identifiable for each category.
This database contains only test ratings and should only be deployed in a test lab environment for the purposes of developing and testing policy. It is not appropriate for use in production environments.
A complete listing of test ratings for all BCWF categories in the database can be found here. This listing was also updated previously to include new and renamed categories.
The configuration for Blue Coat Intelligence Services can only be done from the command line interface
