Web Filter does not block websites

I am trying to block discord in our organisation and it does not seem to work.

 

I have tried flow based , proxy based method with combination of simple , wildcard and regex types.

 

However this somehow blocks support.discord.com page but not the main website or other sub domains

thanks for the reply. but that article explains how to block top level domains which will block all URLs with .com or .net etc.  not a a specific web url.

Hi,

 

- Is there any specific URL in discord.com you are trying to block?

- We also have an application our application filter for Discord. You can use this to block discord URL's as well.

https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Technical-Tip-Configuring-application-profiles-to-block-...

- You can use just the static URL filter for "*.discord.com" in the URL filter (as wildcard) profile and block it too. 

https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Technical-Tip-Using-a-static-URL-filter-feature-to-allow...

- Both of the above blocks all the subdomains of the discord.com

 

Regards,

Shiva
