About IP Reputation Lookup

When an IP Reputation Lookup agent is included in an access or per-request policy, Access Policy Manager (APM) searches for the IP address in the IP intelligence database. The IP intelligence database contains only IP addresses that are considered untrustworthy, along with a category for each that describes why it is not trusted.
APM provides these default branch rules for the IP Reputation action.
Bad
The IP address exists in the IP intelligence database. The expression for this branch rule includes every IP reputation category. For example, the rule includes expressions such as IP Reputation is: Spam Sources OR IP Reputation is: Proxy, and so on. If any IP reputation category is acceptable at your site, you should update this rule or create and use another rule.
Good
The IP address is not found in the IP intelligence database.
fallback
The IP intelligence database is inaccessible for some reason. This can be due to a misconfiguration or a problem with a license or Internet connectivity.
