The security whitelists tool is designed to specify one or more IP addresses that are trusted within the organization. This would most commonly be limited to networks used on site - for example, in an organization's office space or other venue.
The purpose of whitelisting an IP for Smartabase is related to how multi-factor authentication settings behave for that address. If multi-factor authentication is set up for a site, users are required to authenticate when logging in to confirm their identity. If an IP is whitelisted, it will help to avoid over-firing of multi-factor authentication requests due to any network changes. In other words, anyone logging into Smartabase from a whitelisted IP address won’t be required to re-authenticate whenever a network change is detected.
The permission to access the security whitelists tool can only be provided by a Fusion Sport consultant. This tool must be managed carefully, and should only be applied to IP addresses that are considered safe networks within your organization.
