Administer the lists of which requestors are banned and/or permitted access
The quarantined section will show requestors that have been banned for violation of the Dynamic Rules, requestors that have been blacklisted, and requestors that have been whitelisted. You can add and remove requestors, and transfer them among the various lists.
There are four lists of requestors in this section:
Each is described in more detail below.
For each entry, it's possible to see the following: IP address, origin country, AS number, the violation that was triggered, "CNT/Limit" (the number of violations compared to the allowable limit), when the ban began, and when the ban will expire.
All requests from these requestors are currently being rejected. These requestors violated a Dynamic Rule that was set to “Ban” mode.
These requestors are NOT having all their requests rejected. These requestors violated a rule that was set to “Simulated Ban” mode. Simulated Bans are used mainly for testing new rules and seeing how they function, before converting those rules to Ban mode.
All requests from these requestors are currently being rejected. These requestors were placed here by a Reblaze admin.
These requestors are exempted from the Dynamic Rules. For example, even if they violate a rate limit, they will not be banned.
Managing Requestors on the Lists
On the right part of the screen is the section menu, invoked via the button with three vertical dots:
. Depending on context, the section menu will offer the management abilities described below.

Requestors are added to the Banlist and Simulation Banlist automatically when they violate a Dynamic Rule.
Blacklist and Whitelist
You can add a requestor manually to the Whitelist or Blacklist using the "Add New Entry" option in the section menu. This is demonstrated in the following video:
