Global Accelerator:AddEntriesToAcl

Last Updated:Apr 10, 2024

Adds IP addresses or CIDR blocks to an access control list (ACL). You can add IP addresses or CIDR blocks to an ACL and configure a whitelist or blacklist to allow or deny requests from clients.

Operation description

  • AddEntriesToAcl is an asynchronous operation. After a request is sent, the system returns a request ID and runs the task in the background. You can call the GetAcl or ListAcls operation to query the status of the ACL to which you want to add IP entries.

    • If the ACL is in the configuring state, it indicates that IP entries are added to the ACL. In this case, you can perform only query operations.
    • If the ACL is in the active state, it indicates that IP entries are added to the ACL.
  • The AddEntriesToAcl operation holds an exclusive lock on the Global Accelerator (GA) instance. While the operation is in progress, you cannot call the same operation in the same Alibaba Cloud account.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer.

The IP addresses or CIDR blocks that you want to add to the ACL. You can add at most 20 entries in each request.

The description must be 1 to 256 characters in length, and can contain letters, digits, hyphens (-), forward slashes (/), periods (.), and underscores (_).


The client token that is used to ensure the idempotence of the request.

You can use the client to generate the token, but you must make sure that the token is unique among different requests. The token can contain only ASCII characters.

Note If you do not specify this parameter, the system automatically uses the request ID as the client token. The request ID may be different for each request.

Specifies whether to perform a dry run, without performing the actual request. Valid values:

  • true: performs only a dry run. The system checks the request for potential issues, including missing parameter values, incorrect request syntax, and service limits. If the request fails the dry run, an error message is returned. If the request passes the dry run, the DryRunOperation error code is returned.
  • false(default): performs a dry run and performs the actual request. If the request passes the dry run, a 2xx HTTP status code is returned and the operation is performed.
