How Can I Set Distil To Only Monitor Bots?

When a threat response is set to Monitor Only, Distil inspects requests but takes no response action if a threat is detected. Monitor is the default setting when a new account is created or a new domain is added to an account.

Note that the steps vary depending on whether or not you have migrated your domain to the Apollo version of Distil.

Migrated Domains

Follow these steps only if you have migrated your domain to the latest Distil version.

To enable Monitor Only mode:

  1. Log in to the Distil Portal.
  2. Select a domain from your Domains dashboard.
  3. Click Settings on the banner menu.
  4. Click Edit Default Settings to modify content protection settings for the entire domain. Alternately, click Edit Settings by Path to modify content protection settings for specific paths.

  5. Go through each of the content protection tabs and configure each setting to Monitor.
  6. Click Save to save the settings.

Classic Domains

Follow these steps only if you have not migrated your domain to the latest Distil version.

To enable Monitor Only mode:

  1. Log in to the Distil Portal.
  2. Select a domain from your Domains dashboard.
  3. Navigate to Settings > Content Protection.
  4. Select Monitor from each of the dropdown menus in the Manage your threat responses area.
