Access Filters can be used to selectively allow or block access to certain parts of OpenAsset.
Configure Access Filters
Navigate to 'Security' > 'Access Filters' within the Settings menu.
Enter IP addresses into the relevant include or exclude fields.
IP addresses can be separated with semicolons (;) or new lines. Asterisks (*) may be used as wildcards.
For example: 192.168.0.*; 192.168.1.123 would match any IP in the 192.168.0.1-255 range, and 192.168.1.123 specifically.
Turning off 'Anonymous' Access
You can turn off 'Anonymous' access to OpenAsset by adjusting the Access Filter setting (displayed in screenshot above). This will force all users to login before seeing any OpenAsset content.
To turn off Anonymous access:
- Go to the 'Access Filters' page and add the '*' to the Exclude IP Ranges field next to 'Anonymous Access'
- Remove the '*' from the Include IP Ranges field
- Then click 'Save'
Keeping 'Anonymous' access enabled allows users to search the library without logging in. They will not be able to use the files, create/share albums, upload, etc.
Note: We recommend turning Anonymous access OFF as a security measure. This will ensure that only approved users access your library.
