As part of the WAF rules editor, users are able to create what we call Tag Based Rules using pre-defined sets of tags provided by StackPath.
Tag Based Rules are just one component of StackPath's robust rule engine, and by defining specific if/then statements in the portal, users are able to block and allow certain requests to protect their site. The pre-defined sets of tags available to users can be found here.
You may even notice, that this list of tags includes many of the common ones found when reviewing your site's WAF Requests.
Tag Based Rules
In the example below, we set up a tag based rule to block traffic if the tag associated with the request contains Hosting Services.
You can also examine your WAF Requests, most of which contain these pre-defined tags, to help you determine the best way to use them to filter traffic.
