IP Mapping is the action of assigning a custom name to an IP Address.

This is a filter that can be created by assigning a custom name (text) to an IP address.

  • Device private. IP v4 mapping
  • Device public. IP v4 mapping

It can be used to filter IP address data by searching for the custom name instead of the IP address itself.

Create IP Mapping

Navigate to Shield → Configuration → Monitoring Ranges → IP Mapping
