Use the Policy Management > Exceptions > Edit Exceptions page to edit multiple exceptions at the same time.
When you edit multiple exceptions, you can edit only the exception type (permitted or blocked), expiration setting (never expires or expiration date), state (active or inactive), or security override setting (whether URLs in a permitted exception are permitted or blocked if web protection software finds a security risk).
When editing multiple exceptions, if one of the selected exceptions contains referer information and you change the exception type to Block, the change will not be applied to the referer exception. Referer exceptions can only be defined with a Type of Permit. Any other changes will be carried to all selected exceptions
Click the View details of each selected exception link near the top of the page for more information about the exceptions you are editing.

To update the exception State, click Change, then mark or clear the Active check box. Inactive exceptions are not used.
