You can add custom lists, feeds and Threat Insight, and category filters to your policy rules. Depending on your business requirements, you can add as many feeds and Threat Insight, custom lists or category filters as you need and apply them to different security policies. Note that you must first define a custom list or a category filter before you can add it to the security policy. For information about how to create a custom list, see Creating Custom Lists. For information about how to add category or application filters, see Configuring Filters.

To add policy rules, apply actions, and set precedence, complete the following:

  1. On the Policy Rules page of the Create New Security Policy wizard, define the Default Action for all the destinations that you have not included in the security policy, as follows:

    • Allow: Grants traffic access to a domain or IP address that hits a particular feed or security policy.
    • Default Redirect: Routes traffic to the default Infoblox page or a custom message that you have configured for the Redirect Page.
  2. Click the Add Rule menu and choose one of the following policy types:

    Note

    When you choose a policy type, the system adds it to the table. You can perform the following for each rule:

    • Click Select List to view available rules for the respective policy type.
    • Click the Action menu to set the action for each policy rule. For more information about what each action means, see About Rule Actions.
    • Set the precedence order for a policy rule by clicking the up and down arrows at the end of each row to move the rule to its desired rank. The system applies policy rules based on the precedence order. Although you have the flexibility to set precedence for each rule, it is important that you understand the ramification of putting certain policy rules before others. For more information, see Security Policy Precedence.

    • Category Filter: Choose this to add a category filter to the policy. Choose a category filter and click Select to add the category filter to the policy. Category filters are content categorization rules that allow you to detect and filter internet content and traffic that you want to allow or block. Choose the name of the category  from among the Select List options under the NAME menu to add to your security policy.

    • Application Filter: Choose this to add an application filter to the policy. Choose an application filter and click Select to add the application filter to the policy.
