Create a location

When creating a location, enter the IP address or addresses that belong to a region or geographic area in your network, such as a CIDR block for an office branch or company headquarters. Make sure that the CIDR block you provide includes the external IP address of your Active Directory or the local DNS server that is used to communicate with Enterprise Threat Protector (ETP).

You must be an ETP super administrator, delegated administrator, or tenant administrator to complete this task.

Note: While you can assign a policy to a location configuration, you can also assign a location or multiple locations to a policy when you create or modify a policy.

How to

  1. In the Enterprise Center navigation menu, select Locations > Locations. Click the icon and select Add new location.
  2. In the Location name field, enter a name or identifier for the location.
  3. In the Description field, enter a description for the location.
  4. If the policies you need are already created, select a policy from the Policy menu. Otherwise, assign a location to a policy when configuring it or edit this location later.
  5. To enter a domain, IP address, or a CIDR block, click the link icon.
    1. To configure a location with dynamic DNS, in the Dynamic DNS Provider field, enter the domain or domains that are registered with the dynamic DNS provider.
    2. To configure static IP addresses or CIDR blocks, in the Static IP Addresses field, enter an IP address or CIDR block in this format:
      IPAddress/n
      where:
      • IPAddress is the IPv4 or IPv6 address.
      • n is the bit prefix. The maximum CIDR block for IPv4 is /16 and for IPv6 it is /48.

      You can provide multiple IP addresses or CIDR blocks. If you enter more than one address, each address appears as a separate item in the field.

    3. Click Save.
  6. Click Save.
