Configuring the feature in the CLI

To configure this option in the CLI, the URL filter must refer to a web-proxy profile that is using the Modifying HTTP Request Headers feature. The command is only visible when the action for the entry in the URL filter is set to either allow or monitor.

  1. Configure the proxy options:

config web-proxy profile edit “googleproxy” config headers edit 1 set name “X-GoogApps-Allowed-Domains” set content “fortinet.com, Ladan.ca” end

end

end

end

  1. Set a web filter profile to use the proxy options config webfilter urlfilter edit 1 config entries edit “*.google.com” set type wildcard set action {allow | monitor} set web-proxy-profile <profile> end

end

end end

 

In the CLI, you can also add, modify, and remove header fields in HTTP request when scanning web traffic in proxy-mode. If a header field exists when your FortiGate receives the request, its content will be modified based on the configurations in the URL filter.
