Summary

When you create a filter exception, you exclude the IP address group from being the target of the action set for the selected filters. The filter exception applies only to the selected filter; it does not globally affect all filters.

Important: The SMS restricts the number of IP addresses used in filter exceptions, restrictions, and quarantined access for a profile to 65,536. If a profile exceeds this limit, you cannot distribute the profile. This limit promotes better performance for your system. Saving and distributing too many filter changes to a device at one time can cause problems
