Access Protect URL

A standard HTTP Authentication restriction can be added to your website on a specific URL path.

URL protection rules will apply to all domains on the Stratus instance.

Create a Protection Rule

To create a path specific authorization rule:

  1. Go to Access > Protect URL in the Stratus left sidebar menu.
    • LabelEnter a name for the rule.
    • PathEnter the path to be restricted. If the store uses ".html" suffixes, include the suffix with the path. Entering a path ending in a slash ("/") will restrict all files within the directory.
    • LoginEnter a login username.
    • PasswordEnter a password. To create a random password, click Generate Password. Once saved, passwords cannot be later seen; to view a password before saving, click the Eye Icon at the right end of the password field.
