Manually routing event doesn't respect IP Address whitelisting


I implemented IP whitelisting for my server’s webhook endpoint. The notehub documentation states that whitelisting should be sufficient. I find that this is sufficient when events are routed automatically.

However, in the Notehub Web UI, there is a button “Route Event” which allows me to manually route an event which fired previously.

When I click this, I find my request gets rejected by my IP whitelisting rules.

It’s not a big deal, but I thought this might’ve been an oversight. At a minimum, it would be good to call out this edge case in the docs.


Thank you for reporting this. This is a gap that we will correct in a future update.

You are correct that this only impacts events that are routed manually.
