Configure Dimension Access Control Settings

To limit the network access to your instance of Dimension, you can specify the network addresses that are allowed to connect to Dimension. If you do not specify any network addresses, Dimension allows connections from any location. You can specify one or more IP addresses or network addresses.

When you specify the addresses that can connect to Dimension, make sure to include the IP address that you use to connect to Dimension. If you do not include your own address, you will not be able to connect to Dimension after you save your changes.

If you forget to include your own IP address and lock yourself out of Dimension, you can use the CLI to add your IP address to Dimension so you can connect again. For more information about how to use the CLI to add an IP address to the Dimension Access Control list, see Use the CLI to Enable Access to Dimension.

You can also configure access control settings for user accounts and groups. For information about how to specify which addresses users and groups can use to connect to Dimension, see Manage Users and Groups.
