To create an iOS Web Content Filter policy

Oct 20, 2015

The Web Content Filter policy allows you to whitelist and blacklist specific web URLs.

  1. In the Device Manager web console, on the Policies tab, under iOS, click Configurations.
  2. In the New Configuration menu, click Profiles and Settings > Web Content Filter.
  3. In the Create a Web Content Filter dialog box, enter the setting identifier (name) for the policy, a policy name (as it will appear in the Device Manager), and an optional company name and description.
  4. Click the Web Content Filter tab.
  5. Select Auto Filter Enabled to enabled the web content auto filtering mechanism.
  6. Under Permitted URLs, click New permitted URL to add a URL that you want to allow the device users to be able to visit. This optional only works if the Auto Filter option is not selected. Each entry contains a URL that is accessible whether the automatic filter allows access or not.
  7. Under Blacklisted URLs, click New blacklisted URL to enter a list of URLs you do not want the device user to be able to visit. Access to the specified URLs is blocked.
  8. Click the Bookmark Whitelist tab. Bookmark Whitelist URLs that you create here are added to the browser’s bookmarks, and the user is not allowed to visit any sites other than the sites you list.
  9. Click New Whitelist.
  10. In the Create Whitelist Bookmark dialog box, enter the URL, folder, and a name for the bookmark and then click Create.
  11. Click Create again to create the policy.
