Firewall access for Cloud Object Storage

When creating a connection to a Cloud Object Storage bucket that is protected by a firewall, the connector automatically maps to private IP addresses for Cloud Pak for Data as a Service. The private IP addresses must be added to a Bucket access policy to allow inbound connections from Cloud Pak for Data as a Service. Private IP addresses are required only when Cloud Pak for Data as a Service and Cloud Object Storage are located on the same network.

Follow these steps to look up the private IP addresses for the Cloud Pak for Data as a Service cluster:

  1. Go to the Administration > Cloud integrations page.
  2. Click the Firewall configuration link to view the list of IP ranges used by Cloud Pak for Data as a Service.
  3. Choose Include private IPs to view the private IP addresses for the Cloud Pak for Data as a Service cluster.
