Creating Rules

Deledao Education allows a user to create a rule applying to the parent OU, then all sub OUs will get the same rule automatically.

To create a rule go to your Admin Console > Policy Manager.

The default rule will be triggered when all other rules fail to match.

  • Click '+ Add New Rule' to create a new rule. Enter a Rule Name. Choose your "Conditions" for that rule.

  • Next choose what 'Policies' will be applied to that rule.  Policies will tell the AI technology how to filter the browser session.  

Policy Templates

  • Templates can be added to rules for special occasions when a user needs to allow or block certain categories or URL's.  With the "Policy template"  enabled the policy will override the rule.
  • When creating a template you are able to choose what categories to be filtered and the ability to add URL's to the blocked or allowed list.
  • Allowed list in rule can override blocked list of policy template if that option is enabled
  • To allow ads for certain sites, add the URL to the "Allow ads for these sites (e.g. for compatibility)" box 
  • Check the 'Filtering Categories' on the categories to be filtered.     

NOTE: If a “Filter Category” is not selected, then that category will not be filtered

Add URL's to the "Blocked List" and "Allowed List"

Our blocked list and allowed list offer you great flexibility in adding exceptions in your policy. In addition to host and domain names, URLs are also accepted. Below are some examples.

  • The wildcard * is usually not necessary as we automatically match the webpages hosted under the hostname or URL. For instance, "" would match every webpage on However, it won't match
  • "" would match every webpage in the domain, including and
  • "" would match every sub-webpage of (e.g., including itself.
  • "*" can be used in hostnames. Each * would match exactly a component in the hostname between the dots. For instance, "*" would match, but not

  • Press "Save" in the upper right hand side to apply any changes made to a rule.

Rule Hierarchy

  • The Default Rule is the rule that will be duplicated whenever one creates a new rule.

    The Default Rule is the rule that will be applied when all other rules fail to be applied. 
  • The rule that is listed at the top is the rule that will be applied. If the first rule fails, the next applicable rule in the list will be applied. When all rules fail to apply, the Default Rule will take effect.
  • To change the rule order, click on a rule and select the toggle/move arrow icon that will appear on the right side of the selected rule. The Default Rule's location cannot be toggled.
  • If a rule is disabled, then the next rule (from top of the list) that can match those OUs associated with the disabled one will be used.
