By default, instances are not allowed to connect to outside URLs. However, it is possible to add some outside URLs to the list of authorized URLs, so that your instance can connect to them. This allows you to connect your Campaign instances to outside systems like, for example, SFTP servers or websites in order to enable file and/or data transfer.
For Hybrid and On-premise deployments, the administrator needs to reference a new urlPermission in the serverConf.xml file.
Three connection protection modes are available:
<urlPermission action="warn" debugTrace="true"> <url dnsSuffix="abc.company1.com" urlRegEx=".*" /> <url dnsSuffix="def.partnerA_company1.com" urlRegEx=".*" /> <url dnsSuffix="xyz.partnerB_company1.com" urlRegEx=".*" /> </urlPermission>
By default, new implementations use the Blocking mode.
As an existing customer coming from a migration, you can temporary use the Warning mode. Analyze the outbound traffic before allowing the URLs. Once the list of allowed URLs defined, you can add the URLs to the allowlist and activate the Blocking mode.
