Reviewed on 18 December 2023Published on 12 July 2019

Allowed IPs restrict the IPs allowed to access your Database Instance. The entry enables any host to establish a connection.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • A Redis™ Database Instance

Allowed IP configuration is only available for public networks.

How to add an IP address

  1. Click Redis™ under Managed Databases on the side menu. A list of your Database Instances displays.
  2. Click the database name or «See more Icon» > More info to access the Database Instance information page.
  3. Click Allowed IPs tab.
  4. Click Add IP. The IP can be a single IP or an IP block.

    The IP must be specified in CIDR format, i.e. for a single IP or for an IP block.

  5. Enter a single IP address or a subnetwork.

    To restore initial settings and allow connections from all IPs, add the following IP block to the list:


When no IP is specified, your cluster cannot be reached by any host.


By default, the Scaleway console allows any host to connect to your Database Instance.

How to delete an IP address

  1. Go to your allowed IP address list.
  2. Click «Delete Icon».
  3. A pop-up displays. Type DELETE to confirm.
