Domains to be whitelisted/allowlisted for known applications

Domains to be whitelisted/allowlisted for known applications

First version: 2022-11-01
Last updated: 2024-04-08
Last change: Added domains for installing Visual Studio Code extensions.

Introduction

This is a community effort, if you experience issues, see mistakes/updates, or have other applications that you do know what to allowlist, please send a ticket to your Support Team. Together we can make it easier for all.

Domain allowlisting is a self-service feature for Accountable and Privileged Members; a ticket is not needed anymore.
Attention 1:
Some applications require additional proxy configurations (see below).
Understand that domain allowlisting can allow egress of data that is not audited/logged by mDRE.
  1. Inform your members what they can and cannot do.

The Workspaces in myDRE do not have internet access by default. Certain internet access has been available through the External Access tab in the form of IP allowlisting. More recently, ticket-based domain allowlisting was introduced to deal with access to websites that have dynamic IP ranges. From 2023-11-28, domain allowlisting will be a self-service feature for Accountable and Privileged Members. However, it can sometimes be difficult to trace the exact (sub)domains for making programs work correctly. Therefore, we have compiled a list of domains for known applications, based on our own tests and user feedback. This list will be regularly updated.
