Controlling access to the Tenant Management Console

You can choose to allow access to the Tenant Management Console only from specific IP addresses. Similarly, you can choose to deny access to the Console from specific IP addresses.

Controlling access to HCP through the management API

For you to use the HCP management API with a tenant-level user account, the API must be enabled for both the HCP system and the tenant. Additionally, the API must be configured at the tenant level to allow access from your client IP address.

Enabling the management API also enables the use of the S3 compatible and HSwift APIs to perform these bucket (S3 compatible API) and container (HSwift API) activities:

  • Create buckets or containers
  • List the buckets or containers you own
  • Enable, disable, or check the status of versioning for a bucket (S3 compatible API only)
  • Add, retrieve (S3 compatible API only), or remove an access control list (ACL) for a bucket or container
  • Delete a bucket or container

You use the Management API page in the Tenant Management Console to enable and configure the management API at the tenant level. To display this page, in the top-level menu of the Tenant Management Console, select Security MAPI.

Before you begin

To view and modify the HCP management API configuration, you need the security role.

    Changes to this option take effect immediately.

Controlling access to the Search Console

To use the HCP Search Console to search one or more namespaces, users log into the Search Console for the tenant that owns those namespaces. You can choose to allow access to the Search Console only from specific IP addresses. Similarly, you can choose to deny access to the Search Console from specific IP addresses.
