Enforcement order
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Multiple criteria, applied in a specific order, are used to determine whether to permit, block, or limit requested Internet data.
For each request, web protection components:
1.
2.
*
*
*
Policy or exceptions assigned to the IP address (computer or network) of the machine being used
*
Policies or exceptions assigned to groups the user belongs to
*
*
The Default policy
 
Note 
*
*
*
Policy or exceptions assigned to groups the user belongs to
*
*
Policy or exceptions assigned to the external IP address (filtered location) from which the request originates
*
The Default policy
The first applicable exception or policy found is used.
3.
In some cases, a user belongs to more than one group or domain, and no higher-priority policy applies. In these cases, web protection components check the policies assigned to each of the user's groups.
*
*
If one of the groups has a different policy, web protection software uses the Use most restrictive group policy selection on the Settings > General > Filtering page to determine which policy to enforce.
*
If Use most restrictive group policy is checked, and any of the applicable policies blocks access to the requested category, the site is blocked.
*
If one of the applicable policies enforces a limited access filter, the Use most restrictive group policy option can have different effects than expected. See Limited access filters and enforcement order.
