Each Photon Cloud region is identified by a "region token".

Dashboard Regions Filtering

You can filter the list of available Photon Cloud regions per application on the fly directly from the dashboard.

Photon Cloud: Regions Whitelist
Filter Photon Cloud Regions

Go to the dashboard and then click "Manage" for a chosen application and then click "Edit". You will find an input field where you can enter the list of whitelisted regions as follows:

  • the allowed list should be a string of region tokens seprated by semicolon. e.g. "eu;us".
  • region tokens are case insensitive and are defined here.
  • undefined or unrecognized region tokens will be ignored from the list.
  • empty ("") or malformed string (e.g. ";;;") means empty list.
  • empty list means all available regions are allowed.

Once you confirm and save, the operation GetRegions will return only the filtered list of regions. Thus clients should select from that list but it's fully possible clients connect to any available region explicitly. Take into consideration that dashboard updates propagation can take up to 10 minutes.
