How to manage allowed IP addresses for Managed Database for Redis™

Published on 12 July 2019

Allowed IPs define remote access restrictions for your Database Instances. The default entry 0.0.0.0/0 enables any host to establish a connection.

Identity and Access Management (IAM):

If you have activated IAM, you may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
Requirements:

How to add an IP address
