A policy exception that blocks or permits specific URLs (Exceptions > Add Other Clients to Exception)
If you are logged on to a delegated administration role, you can only add clients that appear in your managed clients list to the Clients page or exception.
In policy management and reporting roles, the process of adding managed clients to the Clients page requires assigning them a policy. (Investigative reporting roles do not have this requirement.)
1.

To add a user, group, or domain (OU) client, browse the Directory tree to find entries in your directory service. If you are using an LDAP-based directory service, you can also click Search to enable a directory search tool (see Searching the directory service from the Security Manager).
*
To add a computer or network client, enter an IP address or IP address range in either IPv4 or IPv6 format.
No two network definitions can overlap, but a network client can include an IP address identified separately as a computer client. In the case of such an overlap, the policy assigned to the computer takes precedence over the policy assigned to the network.
2.
To remove an entry from the Selected Clients list, select the client, and then click Remove.
3.
If you are adding clients to the Clients page, select a Policy to assign to all clients in the Selected Clients list.
4.
When you are finished, click OK to cache your changes. Changes are not implemented until you click Save and Deploy.
The clients you selected are displayed either on the Clients page or in your exception.
After adding clients to the Clients page, you can select one or more client entries and click Edit to change policy assignments and other client configuration settings. See Changing client settings for more information.
