You can configure settings for processing web traffic that follows the HTTP protocol on Secure Web Gateway.

  1. On the user interface for Secure Web Gateway, select Policy > Web Policy > Policy.
  2. On the policy tree in the navigation panel, expand Common Rules and select HTTP Protocol.

    The selected rule set appears in the configuration area on the right. 

  3. Configure when this rule set should apply.

    • Under Criteria, leave the default All traffic, as you want the rules in this rule set to apply to all types of traffic.

    • Next to Applies to, leave the default Request, as you want the rules in this rule set to be processed in the request cycle of the filtering process on Secure Web Gateway.


  4. Configure settings for processing HTTP traffic. They are shown under Preset Rules.

    There is a rule for each of the settings.To enable or disable a rule, use the checkbox at the beginning of the line with the rule.


 To enable or disable the complete rule set, use the On/Off toggles at the end of the line with the rule set name.

You have now configured settings that determine how HTTP traffic is processed on Secure Web Gateway.
