To ensure that your Crowd server can be used by legitimate applications only, Crowd will allow applications to log in only from known addresses. This means that you need to specify the IP address(es) and/or hostname(s) of each application.
When you add a new application, you will specify the application's IP address. After adding the application, you can update the IP address if necessary, as described below. In some cases, you may need to add the applicable host name as well as the IP address.
IP address and/or host name?
You should always specify the application's IP address. In addition, you may need to give a host name as well as the IP address. Some application servers may pass the host name to Crowd, instead of the IP address. If this happens, Crowd will not grant the application's authorisation request unless Crowd recognises the host name.
