Anomaly Detection Restrictions and Limitations

Both brute-force protection and breached password detection depend on the IP address of the user. Because of this, the following use cases are not supported:

  • Using the Resource Owner from the backend of the application. Using this call does not get the IP address of the user. See point 2 below as an alternative.

  • Using Resource Owner Password Grant from the backend of the application. Using this call does not get the IP address of the user, however, you can configure your application and send the IP address of the user as part of the request to make brute-force protection work correctly.

  • Authenticating many users from the same IP address. For example, users that are behind a proxy are more likely to reach these limits and trigger the associated protection. It is possible to configure a whitelist for the proxy's IP and CIDR range and avoid erroneously triggering the protection.
