IP Restriction 

Use the IP Restriction policy to restrict access based on the client IP address of the request. If the request does not meet the configured requirements, it is rejected with a 403 Forbidden error.

Restricting access to Tasks based on the client’s IP address is an extra layer of security for protecting your Snaplex nodes. By analyzing the access logs on the nodes, you can determine the range of IP addresses in use, and you can configure this policy accordingly.

Load Balancer Prerequisite

You must configure the Groundplex load balancer correctly to forward the client IP address to the API endpoint. Only when the client IP address is captured correctly can the blocked IP address be displayed accurately in the error message for the 403 error.

Policy Execution Order

This IP Restriction policy executes early in request processing to limit the effects of excessive requests from blocked IP addresses.

Expression Enabled Fields in API Policies

All expression enabled fields take expressions from the SnapLogic Expression Language and the API Policy Manager functions.
