WAF nodes

Administrator access

The creating, deleting, and regenerating of WAF nodes/tokens is only available to users with the Administrator role. Viewing the details of installed WAF nodes is available to all users.

WAF node types

The WAF node type depends on the platform:

  • Regular node is used in Linux‑based, Kubernetes sidecar, and Docker‑based deployments.

  • Cloud node is used in cloud‑based deployments on Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and in Kubernetes Ingress controller deployments.

Detailed information regarding working with different WAF node types can be found in the instructions linked above.

Filtering WAF nodes

To filter displayed WAF nodes, you can enter the name, UUID, token, or IP address of the node in the search field or use the tabs:

  • All with active and inactive regular and cloud nodes.

  • Regular with active and inactive regular nodes.

  • Cloud with active and inactive cloud nodes.

  • Inactive with inactive regular and cloud nodes. WAF node is inactive if it is installed for the inactive instance.
