Organization administrators and users with appropriate permissions can add a level of security to database connection requests by creating IP whitelists and applying them to individual databases. By default, all users with valid credentials can connect to a database. By applying one or more IP whitelists to a database, you ensure that only connection requests from trusted IP addresses are accepted by that database.

Organization administrators and users with Manage IP Whitelists and Edit information and storage permissions can create IP whitelists at either the organization level or the individual database level. Organization level IP whitelists, known as organization IP whitelists, can be applied to any database in that organization. Database level IP whitelists, known as custom IP whitelists, can be applied to a specific database.

IP whitelists contain one or more IP address ranges as well as one or more single IP addresses.

You can add, update, and apply IP whitelists during or after database creation.
