Parent and child account holders of an Enterprise account have the ability to create a range of IP Whitelists. This feature is beneficial if account administrators would like to enable access to RightScale through a company's IP address, essentially blocking traffic from any other IP address. For more information, see Add an IP Whitelist Range.

To be able to properlly manage this feature, Enterprise account managers can modify, add, or delete an IP Whitelist range that has been set from parent or child accounts of an Enterprise account. The instructions below explain how to use this feature.

    • Description (Optional): This is a user-defined description to help describe the purpose of the IP Range.
    • Accounts: A collection of one or more accounts to which the IP Whitelist will apply. Users with IP addresses outside of the whitelist range will not be able to access these accounts.
