You can use bypasses to offer your end users extra access without using the grant checks used in your rule. Each time your end user encounters a grant check in the rule, they are granted the relevant feature, product or trial whether you have added the grant to the user or not.
For example, if you have defined a rule with a feature check on an article to allow end users to view the content, any end users that meet the criteria defined for the bypass can view the content without you granting the product to that user.
You can define bypasses using trusted referrers or IP whitelisting. If using a trusted referrer, they can create trusted links as described in the Create Trusted Links topic.
To set up bypasses for end users, in the following ways:
- Enable the Bypass extension, as described in the Enable the Bypass Extension topic. Use this, for example, if you want to allow anonymous users to access your content when they view it from a specific location – such as a cafe – or show a specific message to users in the defined IP range
Note: To use the Bypass decision node to bypass the product check in a rule, you must use the Bypass extension. If you do not see the Bypass extension in the Extensions, or the Bypass decision node in the decision node bar, contact support to arrange access.
- Configure bypasses, as described in the Configure Bypasses topic. Use this to allow any users in an IP range, or referred from a trusted referrer link, to bypass any product checks
