The only option to monitor all the applications is to create a rule with all the application categories in it with allow action. Unfortunately there is no "ANY" match option for applications or url-categories in NGFW policy based mode. Its painful and the only way.
Wouldn't that allow all traffic through that rule?
I just want to monitor which appliaction is detected and have it in the logs. If i want to build a rule based on appliactions instead of services, i would like to first see what application (if any) is deteceted by fortigate.
