Blocking User Agents

Many requests include obvious indicators that they aren't coming from a human using a web browser, but rather a Python app, Curl script, or another automated requesting mechanism.

If you identify a malicious user agent, you can block it from the Block Bots page of your Expedited WAF dashboard by adding a user agent Blocking Rule:

User Agent Rule

You can also filter aggressive bots by enabling the setting on the Block Bots page that validates user agents before allowing requests through to your Heroku application.
