Set up Whitelist

Whitelisting on Zilliz Cloud serves as a robust security layer at the project level, extending its benefits to every cluster within a specified project. By implementing a whitelist, you effectively narrow down access to your project’s clusters to a select group of IP addresses, substantially mitigating the risk of malicious attacks.

Before you start

Ensure the following prerequisites are met before proceeding:

  • You have signed up for Zilliz Cloud. For information on how to register an account, see Register with Zilliz Cloud.

  • You are the owner of the organization or project in which you want to set up a whitelist. For information on roles and permissions, see A Panorama View.


  1. Log in to the Zilliz Cloud console.

  2. Navigate to the specific organization and project where the whitelist is to be configured.

  3. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Security > + Add IP Address.

  4. In the dialog box that appears, specify IP Address (CIDR) and Description.

    The following table describes the fields.

    IP Address (CIDR)The IP addresses or CIDR block that you want to add to the whitelist. Up to 20 CIDR blocks are allowed. Example value:
    DescriptionThe description of the whitelisted IP addresses or CIDR block.
  5. Click Add.

  • Without any entries in the whitelist, Zilliz Cloud allows access from any IP address.

  • Upon adding a CIDR block, cluster access is exclusively limited to the IP addresses within that block.

  • Adding equates to having an empty whitelist.
