Question: How do I connect other software tools to Meisterplan via a static IP address?
Answer: Meisterplan Software as a Service (SaaS) systems use static IP addresses to communicate with other software tools. This enables administrators to configure their firewalls, proxy servers or other tools so that they only allow access from these specific IP addresses.
The most recent addresses used by the various Meisterplan services are listed in this JSON file.
The following command line query shows an example of how administrators can automate the reading of IP addresses:
curl https://static.meisterplan.com/infrastructure/ip-ranges.json | jq -r '.prefixes | select(.region == "us") | select(.service == "meisterplan") | .ip_prefix'
In this example, the IP addresses for a Meisterplan SaaS system hosted in the US region are queried. The syntax of the query is documented at Amazon Web Services.
