A test database is available for customers of Symantec WebFilter formerly known as Blue Coat WebFilter (BCWF) to test policies against the renamed applications that are part of the Application Classification feature update that is scheduled to become effective on May 31, 2018.
The database will contain the applications as they will appear when the update is fully released on May 31, 2018. The application classifications in the database represent the real application and can be tested by simply visiting the application.
This database contains only test classifications and should only be deployed in a test lab environment for the purposes of developing and testing policy. It is not appropriate for use in production environments.
A listing of the BCWF applications can be found here. By clicking on the application name and then the globe icon, you will be directed to the application landing page which should be recognized as the application in the test database.
The configuration for Blue Coat Intelligence Services can only be done from the command line interface.
