Managing blocked IP addresses

You can block specific IP addresses from accessing your Developer Portal site.

Before you begin

You must have administrator access to complete this task.


To manage blocked IP addresses, complete the following steps:

  1. Click Configuration, then click IP address blocking.
    The IP address blocking dialog box is displayed.
  2. You can complete the following tasks:
    1. To block an IP address, enter the address in the IP address field, and click Add.
      The address is added to the BLOCKED IP ADDRESSES list.
    2. To unblock an IP address by removing it from the list, click delete alongside the address that you want to unblock.
    Note: there is automatic log in 'flood' protection built into the Developer Portal. This feature means that an excess of log in attempts from the same IP address in one hour will cause that IP to be temporarily blocked.
