I recently found myself needing to look up the web filter category for an unknown domain. I typically refer to FortiGuard Labs, and in the process of looking up a domain today, I thought surely there was an easy way to initiate a lookup from Alfred. A couple of FortiGuard searches gave me the information I needed. All I needed to do was pass a couple of parameters in the query string, so I created a simple new workflow to do just that – you can even choose what type of lookup you want to perform on the string (FortiGuard currently has 8 different ways to search). It’s available on Github if you want to check it out.
