An HTTP client filter specifies web services client machine that can send requests to the Data Integration Service. By default, a web service client running on any machine can send requests.
To specify machines that can send web service request to a Data Integration Service, configure the HTTP client filter properties in the Data Integration Service properties. When you configure these properties, the Data Integration Service compares the IP address or host name of machines that submit web service requests against these properties. The Data Integration Service either allows the request to continue or refuses to process the request.
You can use constants or Java regular expressions as values for these properties. You can include a period (.) as a wildcard character in a value.
You can allow or deny requests from a web service client that runs on the same machine as the Data Integration Service. Enter the host name of the Data Integration Service machine in the allowed or denied host names property.

The Data Integration Service accepts requests from machines with IP addresses that match this pattern. The Data Integration Service refuses to process requests from machines with IP addresses that do not match this pattern.
