Overview: Confirming requests in per-request policies

Using per-request policies with Secure Web Gateway, you can develop the primary actions to take for every request accessing resources that are protected by APM. At certain points, you can request that the system displays a Confirm box where the user has the option to Continue or Cancel the current action. For example, a web site may require users to be over 18 to access it contents. The user must confirm that they are over 18. You can create the Confirm box only in a subroutine in a per-request policy.
To support this configuration, you need a per-session access policy, but no specific configuration is required in it. The per session policy and the per-request policy need to be associated with the virtual server that connects to the resources being protected. You also need to create or import URL categories from the URL database and the two URL filters that are used in the macros. Refer to
BIG-IP Access Policy Manager: Secure Web Gateway
for details on configuring the URL database, and creating URL categories and filters.
