After you create an AnalyticDB for MySQL cluster, you must configure a whitelist for the cluster to allow access from external devices to the cluster.

Background information

  • The default whitelist of an AnalyticDB for MySQL cluster contains only the default IP address 127.0.0.1, which indicates that no devices are allowed to access the cluster.
  • Whitelists can enhance access security for AnalyticDB for MySQL clusters. We recommend that you maintain the whitelists on a regular basis.
  • Whitelists do not affect the normal operation of AnalyticDB for MySQL clusters.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the AnalyticDB for MySQL console by your Alibaba Cloud account.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the page, select the region where clusters reside.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Clusters.
  4. On the V3.0 Clusters tab, click the target Cluster ID.
  5. In the left-side navigation pane, click Data Security.
  6. On the Whitelist Settings tab, click Edit to the right of the default whitelist.
    Note You can also click Create a whitelist Group to create a whitelist.
    Edit Whitelist
  7. In the Edit Whitelist panel, remove the default IP address 127.0.0.1 and enter the IP addresses or CIDR blocks that you want to allow. Then, click OK.
    • If you enter a CIDR block, access from all IP addresses in the CIDR block is allowed.
    • Do not add 0.0.0.0 to the whitelist.
    • If your public IP addresses change frequently and you want to allow all your public IP addresses, you can add 10.0.0.0/0 to the whitelist.
      Warning Risks may arise if you add 10.0.0.0/0 to the whitelist. Proceed with caution.
    • If you want to add multiple IP addresses or CIDR blocks, separate multiple entries with commas (,). Do not add spaces before or after the commas. Example: 192.168.0.1,172.16.213.9.
    • The whitelist modification takes effect in 1 minute.
