How can I block a specific IP address on my Front servers ?

Sometime, using the WAF, you could see some unexpected traffic which could have an impact on your website availability. 

The WAF will block some requests on specifics URL but not on an IP. If you want to forbid a specific IP to access your Front Server, follow these steps:

  1. In your project, create a new security group (named for example front_forbidden_ips) and add the concerned IP in it
  2. Go in your environment, in Settings > Security
  3. In the "Front IP Groups (HTTPS requests)" input box select your new security group and activate the box "Deny list"
  4. Save

From this point, the IP address won't have access to the front server.
