In the policy with URL learning mode set to ALWAYS, wildcard URL matching for *.[Pp][Nn][Gg]", "*.[Jj][Pp][Gg]", "*.[Gg][Ii][Ff]" will prevent you from adding other wildcard destinations using policy builder.
You will not be able to accept the learning suggestion to the correct wildcard URL.
Policy builder enabled. PolicyBuilder creates the wildcard urls "*.[Pp][Nn][Gg]", "*.[Jj][Pp][Gg]", "*.[Gg][Ii][Ff]". If you need to manually create another wildcard url "/polo/images/*", the pattern match will be incorrect and you will not be able to accept the learning suggestion.
In order to get suggestions on the correct wildcard match, remove "png" from the URL list in the policy: To do so, navigate to Security :: Application Security :: Policy Building :: Learning and Blocking Settings :: URLs :: File types for which wildcard HTTP URLs will be configured (e.g., *.jpg). Also make sure that you have correct wildcard order. Go to Security :: Application Security :: URLs :: Wildcards Order :: HTTP URLs. "/polo/images/*" should be above "*.[Pp][Nn][Gg]" in the list. If it is not, move it using "Up" button".
Wildcard URL pattern match now works as expected in Traffic Learning
