For example, if you add a URL mask that would include but you dont want to be included, you would add the proper mask to exclude it from the Category).

When using bt-LogAnalyzer without bt-WebFilter installed

When bt-LogAnalyzer 6 is installed on a server with bt-WebFilter, the URL Control List is maintained under the bt-WebFilter objects but can be accessed via the bt-LogAnalyzer Management Interface since the WebFilter objects are also displayed. The procedures for adding a new Category in this instance are the same as above however please be aware that any Category created in WebFilter could cause access to included URLs to be disruppted depending on your Custom Access Policies and Access Rule configurations. For example, If you are using a "Permission Policy" type and have the Category "My Sites" allowed and you add a new Category that contains a URL mask that matches a URL in the Allowed Category, users would be denied access. As a precaution, ALWAYS perform a Category Lookup to verify that the URL you plan to add is not part of any other Category that could affect operations in your environment)
