How do I restrict access to my application?

Sometimes you will need to restrict access to your environments. Artifakt allows you to use 2 methods:

IP Whitelisting

In order to use IP Whitelisting, you have to use groups of IP addresses, which will be used to restrict access to any of your environments. See How do I create a group of IP addresses? for more details.

Navigate to the Environment Settings of the environment you want to restrict access to and select 'Security'. From here, locate the section 'IP Whitelisting'.

Depending on your very specific needs, you can either filter traffic leading to your application (HTTP font traffic) or to your server (SSH access).

For each traffic type, select the group of IP addresses you want to apply and click on 'Save'. Please note that these changes take effect immediately.

Password Restriction

Password protection allows you to block access to your application to visitors without credentials. You can either configure an application-wide protection or only sub-sections of your application.

Navigate to the Environment Settings of the environment you want to restrict access to and select 'Security'. From here, locate the section 'Password Protection' and click on 'Add Password Protection'.

You can create as many restrictions as you need. Provide required data (username, password and the path you want to protect like '/admin') and click on 'Add'.

Please note that if you want to set up an application-wide protection, you should enter '/*' in the 'path' field.
