Websense filtering hierarchy in a Directory Service environment

Transparent identification and adding LDAP objects into Websense Manger are linked. If transparent identification works successfully, then you will see correct filtering for LDAP objects added to Websense Manger. Conversely, if transparent identification fails to identify users, then filtering will not occur as expected for LDAP objects added to the Manager. When all is set up correctly, you have the following filtering hierarchy:

  1. User Names
  2. Computer IP
  3. Network IP Range
  4. Groups
  5. OUs
  6. Domains
  7. Websense Default Policy

When the user is not identified, then you have the following filtering hierarchy:

  1. Computer IP
  2. Network IP Range
  3. Websense Default Policy
