Scripting URL overrides in Forefront TMG

Scripting URL overrides in Forefront TMG

You can use Forefront TMG scripting capabilities to allow non-TMG administrators to locally override a URL (enabling advanced help-desk scenarios). Here’s a script snippet that demonstrates adding www.contoso.com/* to the Anonymizers category:

set fpc = CreateObject("FPC.Root")

set arr = fpc.GetContainingArray

set overrides = arr.ArrayPolicy.WebProxy.UrlFilteringSettings.OverridingUrlCategories

overrides.Add "www.contoso.com/*", 2

arr.save

 

As you can see, the Add method takes the Category ID (the number 2, representing Anonymizers) as a parameter. Here’s a list of the Category IDs:

         1        Alcohol 

         2        Anonymizers
