Usg210 - https websites are not logged in Forward web sites

I am trying to check some logs and took a simple website as testing website:
When accessing, the website appears immediately in the logs: Monitoring/Log
However, when trying to access, nothing in the logs regarding Forward web sites.

Note that in Configuration / Content Filter, the Enable HTTPS Domain Filter for HTTPS traffic is checked.

Any idea?

    Hi @Milos

    It is normal, the SSL is an encrypted link between the web browser and the server. The firewall only can see an encrypted traffic.

    Hi @Milos,


    The logs for Forward web sites are disabled by default.

    You need to switch it to "normal" manually.

    There are logs for forward web sites even if they are HTTPS websites.
