    Block access to Live Environment website during development/testing phase

    Hi All,

    I'm using the starter plan of Umbraco Cloud which basically gives you ONE live environment. I also have a colleague developing. We are developing locally but to get content updates between each other during development, it forces us to deploy to the live and only environment (and we restore the content locally).

    We don't really want things to be public facing at the moment and was looking if there was a way to stop people accessing the live website (I'm talking about the website itself here, not the backoffice). The whitelist option in the portal relates to the umbraco backoffice and not the actual website. Could rules be added in the web.config for example?

    Any ideas?

    Hi Dennis,

    I faced this same challenge last year, and did indeed talk to the Cloud support via chat. They couldn't really help. I also posted a question on the subject here: https://our.umbraco.com/forum/umbraco-cloud/93666-controlling-access-to-umbraco-cloud-web-sites-during-initial-developmentlaunch-periods.

    It's great to hear that it is possible to get basic authentication on the live env, but I'm hesitant to contact cloud support via chat again since that didn't work last time. It really should be a standard feature that we can enable/disable in the clould control dashboard.

    We're still in development on our site, and have had to leave the live site alone for quite a while now (just using the dev env). I have unpublished the root pages on live to avoid anyone getting in there. We will probably have to deal with this again in the next month while getting ready to launch.
