Configuring access for the TIBCO Cloud™ Spotfire® web client in cloud data sources
If you want to use data from cloud data sources, such as Azure SQL or Amazon Redshift, in the TIBCO Cloud™ Spotfire® web client, certain configurations might be required in the data source. Setting up the proper access rules is often a task for the data source administrator.
To protect your data, cloud-based, internet-facing data sources can be configured to allow or deny access from certain applications or computers. One of the ways to define access rules is to use IP addresses to identify what traffic should be allowed, a process often referred to as whitelisting. To access and query a data source with IP restrictions from TIBCO Cloud™ Spotfire® web clients, you might have to configure whitelisting in the data source, allowing the IP addresses used by the Spotfire web client.
Supported data sources
Currently, data sources in the following systems might need to be configured to whitelist traffic from TIBCO Cloud™ Spotfire® web clients.
- Microsoft Azure SQL Database

The process for whitelisting IP addresses in an OData data source depends on your OData provider.
