Secure Publish Web Service

The preview functionality exploits security vulnerability. To prevent this, the IP address of the calling web service will always be checked. Therefore, the allowed IP address (ranges) in the 'PublishWebServiceIpCheck' configuration value must be specified.

To configure the allowed IP address (ranges):

  • Open the 'web.config' file which is located in: 'SDK\StarterSite\Management\Web.config';
  • Locate 'PublishWebServiceIpCheck' application setting:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
                    <add key="PublishWebServiceIpCheck" value=""/>
  • Specify allowed IP addresses (ranges).
Possible IP (ranges) formats:
  • regular IP (e.g.;
  • IP with wildcards (e.g. 10.*.*.*);
  • IP range (e.g.
Multiple values can be separated by the '|' character.
