Severity: 3-Major


Custom categories lookup and matching is not partition specific.


Partition specific custom category match is not available if user specific whitelist needs to be applied.


Create SWG Explicit VS, access policy, per-request policy, custom-category with a glob URL and URL filter in custom partition say partition1 and similarly create similar set in partition2 (Note make sure the glob URL is matched in custom categories in 2 different partitions). Set the browser to explicit proxy:port information of partition1 VS and access the URL to be matched to the custom category.



Fix Information

Code to check custom categories only for the partition that connflow belongs to and Common partition has been added
