Search IP Address Report

Use the Search IP Address report to dig deeper into offending IP addresses attempting to access your site. The report allows you to search for a specific IP address you may have seen in your web security logs and research additional information associated with the IP address, such as:

  • Country of origin
  • Organization
  • Name of violations
  • Total violations

NOTE: This report does not search for IP addresses in your Bot Defense for API logs.

Use the data shown in this information to research specific reasons why a request triggered a violation. For example, the IP address 1.1.1.1 appears in your logs, and you can see Distil served the IP address with a CAPTCHA test while it was attempting to access a specific path for your domain (e.g., /ajax/bulklist). You can then search the IP address 1.1.1.1 in the Search by IP Address report and review specific reasons the CAPTCHA test was triggered, which helps you debug issues and/or tweak the strictness of threat policies.

If the IP address has ever been associated with a violation against your domain, then the report shows the IP Address, Country, Organization, and Total Bad Requests.

If the IP address has a violation against your domain within the date range selected, then the report also shows the violations table.

The violations table includes violation information, such as:

  • Violation – The name of the violation.
  • Count of Requests – Total number of requests associated with the violation.
