Bot Fight Mode and RSS feed readers

“Definitely Automated” includes RSS feed readers such as Feedburner, RSSOwl and a few others.

If you select Block or Challenge for “Definitely Automated” those tools don’t have access to feeds.

But it also seems a firewall rule “Agent contains rss or feed” with an action “Bypass WAF Managed Rules” doesn’t seem to actually bypass the Bot fight mode as I can still see these being blocked even some time after the rule was added (and yes, I can see the rule being triggered).

Any idea on why the Bypass WAF Managed doesn’t seem to be working on Bot Management?


I have raised a ticket to clarify precedence in this case.


Confirmed Bypass does not affect Super Bot Fight Mode.

Any update on this? I have the same problem.
