Introduction to IP Allow Lists

AEM as a cloud service is accessible via the internet and is secured through user authentication and authorization. Cloud Manager’s IP allow lists can be used to limit and control access only to trusted IP addresses. Cloud Manager users with appropriate permissions can create allow lists of trusted IP addresses from which their site’s users can access their AEM domains.

IP allow lists can be added once and applied/unapplied multiple times as a unit or entity to an author and/or publisher service in an environment.


There are a number of limitations to IP allows lists to keep in mind.

  • A maximum of 50 IP allow lists can be added in your program
  • A maximum of 50 IP/CIDR addresses can be added to each IP allow list.
  • IP allow lists names are supported in Cloud Manager for author and/or publish service in an environment.
