The Allowed IP List is an optional DCT feature that gives administrators control over which IP addresses or range of addresses can access DCT. This feature provides benefit by restricting DCT access to specific IP/Ranges, whether between departments or for remote single users.
The Allowed IP List is accessible by selecting the gear and lock icon on the navbar, then choose Allowed IPs from the two options. If a user is accessing DCT for the first time, the Allowed IP List will appear on the Get Started page. Select the Go To Allowed IPs link in the Allowed IPs tile.
IP/Range List Overview
The Allowed IP List page contains a table of useful information pertaining to the IP/Range that have been configured. This table is empty by default, meaning that any IP address can access DCT. If the list contains disabled addresses and none are enabled, any IP can access DCT as if the feature were inactive.
The columns include sortable headers for a description of the IP/Range and a preview of the active state (enabled/disabled). Enabled IP/Ranges are the only addresses allowed to access DCT, having an enabled address in this list means the feature is active. Disabled IP/Ranges are unable to access DCT, unless all IP/Ranges in the list are disabled. Addresses can be disabled without being deleted in case they need to be enabled for DCT access at another time.
ADD CURRENT ADMIN USER IP FIRST
At least one IP/Range in the list has to be enabled for the feature to be active. The first added IP address MUST be for the current admin user, otherwise the admin will lock themselves out of the environment.
The search will return results based on Description criteria. Search can receive multiple keywords, but the returned result must satisfy all of the keyword inputs.
Adding, Editing, and Deleting
Effect Of Action Time
All changes to an IP/Range (disable, enable, add, edit, or delete) could take up to an hour before the changes are in effect due to proper caching times. During the change, newly enabled or disabled addresses may still have varying access, respectively.
Select the Add Allowed IP/Range button to add a new address to the list. The window that appears will prompt for the same information as shown in the edit screen. Newly added IP/Range can be enabled or disabled on creation, but remember that the current user IP should be enabled first during configuration.
Only one IP/Range can be edited, enabled, or disabled at a time, even if there are multiple selected. To edit, enable, or disable an IP/Range, select the three dot icon on the line of the address being edited, then choose Edit from the menu. This window can be used to change the IP/Range, Description, or State.
The multi-select boxes on the left of the table will allow mass deletion for the selected IP/Ranges. All of the actions that are taken within the Allowed IP List will show related messages describing how the addresses are effected by the action taken.
Deleting an IP/Range will implicitly disable the address as well. In the example below, the window on the left shows the effect of deleting one of the two enabled addresses. The one being removed will mention that the IP/Range will be blocked upon deletion, as if it were disabled. If all enabled address are being deleted, a message will appear similar to the window on the right.
