Block IP addresses from accessing Identity Administration
This topic describes how to add an IP address or range in the Blocked IP Ranges page to block access to Identity Administration. In addition you can toggle access using the Disable or Enable options in the Actions menu. Select Disable to set the IP address or range to Inactive; thus allowing access to Identity Administration for the selected IP address or range. Select Enable to set the IP address or range back to Active; thus blocking access to Identity Administration for the selected IP address or range. This can be helpful if you want to toggle access temporarily without removing the IP range configuration.

- Sign in to the Identity Administration portal.
- Go to Settings > Network > Blocked IP Ranges, then click Add.
- Enter a name to identify the configuration.
