When a cloud policy denies access to a resource or needs to inform the user of an event, it can serve any configured notification page. There is a standard set of pages included with your web product, and you can either modify these to suit your needs, or add your own pages. You can then refer to the notification pages from any of your policies.
The pages are grouped for ease of navigation. Click a down arrow next to a group name to see a list of all the pages within that group. To see all available pages, click All.

HTTPS notifications
To enable the cloud proxy to serve the correct notification page to the user for HTTPS sites - for example, a block page if the site is in a category that the end user is prevented from accessing, or the Pre-logon welcome page for authentication - you need a root certificate on each client machine that acts as a Certificate Authority for secure requests to the cloud proxy.
To install the root certificate for your end users and enable notification pages for HTTPS sites:
1.
In the Settings area, click the root certificate link and download the certificate to a location on your network. You can then deploy the certificate manually, using your preferred distribution method
2.
Once the certificate has been deployed, return to this page and mark Use certificate to serve notifications for HTTPS pages.
3.
Click Save.
