Networking requirements

Centero Software Manager service uses different backend services depending of the CSM product. To see what backend services each CSM product requires, check requirements documentation under specific CSM product.

Note!

Starting on 1st of April 2021 we are adding Azure Front Door service to all our publicly accessible services. This means that IP addresses of our public services will change during April 2021. If you are restricting outbound network access using IP addresses/IP address prefixes in your environment, please add Azure Front Door frontend IP address prefixes to be allowed before 1st of March 2021. Do not remove access to current service IP addresses until you have received verification from us that old IP addresses are no longer in use.

If you are not restricting outbound access or you are using DNS names for restricting the access, you don't need to change anything.

You can find Azure Front Door frontend addresses that you need to allow from Microsoft. Download the JSON document and search for section AzureFrontDoor.Frontend to see list of address prefixes (property addressPrefixes) that needs to be allowed.
