When the admin goes to delete a certain URL from a custom category, it should be removed from the category and not be matched anymore with that category. In certain cases, the URL is not removed effectively.


When the URL with syntax "http*://" is deleted from the custom category, it will not take effect for SSL matches. For example, if "http*://www.f5.com/" was inserted and then deleted, and the user passed traffic for http://www.f5.com/ and https://www.f5.com/, the SSL traffic would still be categorized with the custom category even though it was deleted. The HTTP traffic would be categorized correctly.


This only occurs when the syntax "http*://" is used at the beginning of the URL when inserted into custom categories.


"bigstart restart tmm" will resolve the issue.

Fix Information

Made sure that the deletion takes effect properly and SSL traffic is no longer miscategorized after removal of the URL from the custom category.
