Firewall access for Watson Studio

Inbound firewall access is granted to the Watson Studio service by allowing the IP addresses for Cloud Pak for Data as a Service on .

If Watson Studio is installed behind a firewall, you must add the WebSocket connection wss://dataplatform.cloud.ibm.com to the firewall settings. Enabling this WebSocket connection is required when you're using notebooks and RStudio.

Follow these steps to look up the IP addresses for Cloud Pak for Data as a Service and allow them on IBM Cloud:

  1. From the main menu, choose Administration > Cloud integrations.
  2. Click Firewall configuration to display the IP addresses for the current region. Use CIDR notation.
  3. Copy each CIDR range into the IP address restrictions for either a user or an account. You also must enter the allowed individual client IP addresses. Enter the IP addresses as a comma-separated list. Then, click Apply.
  4. Repeat for each region to allow access for Watson Studio.

When allowing the IP addresses for Watson Studio, you include the CIDR ranges for the Watson Studio cluster. You can also allow individual client system IP addresses.

For step-by-step instructions for both user and account restrictions, see IBM Cloud docs: Allowing specific IP addresses
