Legitimate visitors or pages are being blocked by the firewall. How do I add this to the whitelist?
Our whitelist feature makes it easy to whitelist specific requests.
- Log in to the Patchstack App
- Go to My Apps > yourdomain.com > Hardening
- Scroll down to Whitelist text field
This text field supports a specific syntax that you can use to whitelist specific requests. Each definition must be placed on its own line.
We accept the following parameters in this text field:
IP = firewall will not run against the IP
PAYLOAD = if the entire payload contains the keyword, the firewall will not proceed
URL = if the URL contains the given URL, the firewall will not proceed
In this scenario, the firewall will not run if the IP address is 192.168.1.1 or if the payload contains contact_form or if the URL contains water, or if the URL contains /some-form.
