Geo-location Filter Policy

Specify an allow list or block list of:

  • Countries - Country of the incoming request. The two-letter country code in the request, for example, "US".
  • regionCodes - If known, the ISO 3166-2 code for the first-level region associated with the IP address of the incoming request, for example, "TX"
  • ASNs - ASN of the incoming request, for example, 395747.

If you specify an allow and block list for the same location type (e.g. country) may have no effect or block all requests.

"allow" : {
"countries" : "US"
"block" : {
"countries" : "MC"

The policy will only allow requests from US, so any request from MC would be automatically blocked.
