Office 365 URLs are a set of URLs that Microsoft has defined for Office365 resources. From BIG-IQ, you can create a schedule to fetch Office 365 URLs and configure URL categories, which you then attach to an SSLO security policy and deploy in an SSLO topology configuration. The categories that will be created from this fetch are Allow, Default, Optimize and All (All includes URLs from all categories). If you add the
category of O365 URLs to a security policy, the traffic will not be inspected. If you add the
category to a policy, the package will be inspected. If you select the
category to add to a security policy, you are choosing to optimize traffic speed for critical Microsoft endpoints such as Outlook and Sharepoint. If you fetch
categories, you can add all of the above Microsoft endpoints to a security policy.
This list is dynamic and is frequently updated by Microsoft. You can also use this page to view the result of the last run and to view the past and upcoming run schedule.
After you have finished configuration, you can add the Office 365 URL categories to a security policy rule when the network traffic matches all categories. You can then deploy the security policy on target BIG-IP devices.
