With the Blocked IP/Host List Policy, a list of IPs or IP ranges is defined so that requests from IPs in this list are rejected.
While checking the IP in Apinizer, the Request Header value, if any, set in the X-Forwarded-For policy is checked first. If this policy does not exist, the Remote Address value of the client is checked.
While controlling the IP in Apinizer, the value at Network Level7 is checked. If it is desired to control the value at Network Level4, appropriate software or hardware should be used.
The image containing the policy settings is given below:
The policy fields are shown in the table below.

One or more IP Groups can be added to the policy. All IPs in the IP Group are added to the policy.
