Whitelisting IP AddressesΒΆ

Whitelisting IP addresses allows users of an account to login only from certain IP addresses.

To whitelist an IP address, perform the following steps:

  1. On the QDS user interface, navigate to the Control Panel. Click the Whitelist IP tab. If there is no whitelist IP address added, it is as shown in the following figure.
