The number next to Policies using this filter shows how many policies currently use the selected filter. If the cloud app filter is active, click View Policies for a list of policies that enforce the filter.
The bottom portion of the page shows the details of the filter you selected.
To change the way clouds apps are filtered and logged:
1.
Enable Block all high risk apps to block access to any cloud app that is considered high risk.
2.
In the Blocked apps list, add specific cloud apps that should always be blocked, regardless of their risk level.
a.
b.
Search results are listed alphabetically within each risk level.
c.
The cloud app is added to the blocked list.
d.
The number of apps included in the list is provided above the list box. Cloud apps in the list are sorted alphabetically within each risk level.
3.
In the Permitted apps list, add cloud apps that should always be permitted.
a.
b.
Search results are listed alphabetically within each risk level.
c.
The cloud app is added to the permitted list.
d.
The number of apps included in the list is provided above the list box. Cloud apps in the list are sorted alphabetically within each risk level.
 
Important 
The Permitted apps list takes precedence over the Block all high risk apps option. Access to a high risk app that is on the permitted list is allowed even if Block all high risk apps is enabled.
4.
Click OK to close the message window. No further action is taken.
5.
Click OK to remove it from the original list and add it as requested. Click Cancel to leave both lists unchanged.

Note 
To activate a new cloud app filter, add it to a policy and apply the policy to clients (see Web Protection Policies).
Delete a filter by selecting it in the list on the Filters page and clicking Delete. Filters that are used in a policy cannot be deleted. The Monitor Only filter cannot be deleted since it is used as the default cloud apps filter when a new policy is added.
