Issue/Introduction

When SSL interception is not configured on the ProxySG it is unable to inspect the full request URL of HTTPS requests. However, in explicit mode, since the initial request is presented in the form of the HTTP CONNECT method, the ProxySG can view the host header to determine the domain name, but the full URL is not presented by the client until the SSL session is established.

In order to view the full URL of HTTPS requests, SSL interception must be configured on the ProxySG.

Note: An SSL Proxy License is also required for the use of SSL interception.
