Implementing IP address whitelists

Hybrid Data Pipeline supports IP address whitelists. Using the Hybrid Data Pipeline APIs, administrators and users can restrict access to Hybrid Data Pipeline by creating a whitelist of IP addresses (either individual IP addresses or a range of IP addresses). Whitelists can be set to restrict access to resources such as the Management API, the Administrators API, data access, and the Web UI. Depending on a user's permissions, IP whitelists can be implemented at system, tenant, and user levels.
When an IP address whitelist is set at the system level, users across the system must access the given Hybrid Data Pipeline resource from an IP address or range of IP addresses specified in the whitelist. When an IP address whitelist is set at the tenant level, users who reside in the tenant must access the resource from IP address or range of IP addresses specified in the whitelist. When an IP address whitelist is set at the user level, the specified user must access the resource from an IP address or range of IP addresses specified in the whitelist. When an IP address whitelist is set at multiple levels for a given resource, Hybrid Data Pipeline first checks the system level, then the tenant level, and then the user level. If any check fails, the user attempting to access the service from an invalid IP address will be unable to log in and a 403 access-denied error will be returned.
*A user with the Administrator (12) permission (a system administrator) can implement and create whitelists for all resources at system, tenant and user levels.
*A user with the following permissions can create whitelists for resources at the tenant level: the MgmtAPI (11) permission, the IPWhiteList (29) permission, and administrative access to the tenant.
*A user with the following permissions can create whitelists for resources at the user level: the Mgmt (11) permission and the IPWhitelist (29) permission. To set permissions for users, see Working with user permissions.
In addition to implementing whitelists at system, tenant, and user levels, IP address whitelists can be used to specify IP address ranges for several Hybrid Data Pipeline resources. For example, a system administrator may wish to restrict tenant administrator access to a range of IP addresses for a given tenant. Note that if no whitelist is defined for a particular resource, all IP addresses will be allowed access to that resource. Also, no whitelist restrictions apply when Hybrid Data Pipeline is accessed from a local host.
Access to the following resources can be managed with IP address whitelists.
*Management API
*Administrators API
*Data access (ODBC, JDBC, and OData)
*Web UI (system level only)
* Enabling and disabling the IP address whitelist feature
* Using the IP Address Whitelist API
