Manage Destination Lists

A destination list is a list of internet destinations that can be blocked or allowed based on the administrative preferences for the policies applied to the identities within your organization. A destination is an IP address (IPv4), URL, or fully qualified domain name. You can add a destination list to Umbrella at any time; however, a destination list does not come into use until it is added to a policy.

Note: URLs are only supported for Block lists while IP addresses are only supported for Allow lists. IP addresses added to the Allow lists must have IP Layer Enforcement enabled for the policy.

If a Destination List Entry Doesn't Fully Unblock or Allow a Page

Web pages utilize many different domains, and a content domain may be responsible for the remaining blocks. For more information, see Allow/Blocking a Site (Best Practice).

Tip — Keep Your Destination Lists Small

While Umbrella can support up to 5000 destinations in a single destination list, a destination list with over 100 destinations may impact Umbrella's performance and take up to one hour to load into Umbrella's infrastructure. We recommend that you keep your destination lists small—no more than 100 destinations per destination list.
