Context profiles enable creating attributes key value pairs such as layer 7 App Id, and Domain Names. After a context profile has been defined, it can be used in one or more distributed firewall rules and gateway firewall rules.
There are two attributes for use in context profiles: App Id and Domain (FQDN) Name. Select App Ids can have one or more sub attributes, such the TLS_Version and CIPHER_SUITE. Both App Id and domain name can be used in a single context profile. Multiple App Ids can be used in the same profile. One App Id with sub attributes can be used - sub attributes are cleared when multiple App Id attributes are used in a single profile.
Currently, a predefined list of domains is supported. You can see the list of FQDNs when you add a new context profile of attribute type Domain (FQDN) Name. You can also see a list of FQDNs by running the API call
