Bot Exception Rule

Overview

The bot management exception rules provide an allowlist configuration option for the bot management module, allowing for quick configuration to release valid bot access. Once released, all other bot rule modules will be skipped, avoiding valid requests being disposed of by other bot rules.
Note:
This function is only supported by subscribing to the EdgeOne bot management option.

Scenario: Releasing valid monitoring tool requests

Example Scenario

In order to check the operation of the domain name api.example.com, a monitoring tool is deployed on a device with a client IP of 12.12.12.12, periodically accessing the API and observing service performance and availability. Since the monitoring tool does not have a complete browser kernel, it mainly uses the cURL external tool library for access, and has periodic high-frequency access characteristics. To avoid the monitoring tool being blocked wrongly, its features can be added to the bot management exception rules.

Directions
