Does Cronofy provide fixed IP addresses for calendar service traffic?

Cronofy uses fixed IP address when communicating with calendar servers according to the data center the calendar service is connected to.

Your application vendor will be able to tell you which data center applies to your integration so that you can set your firewall rules accordingly.

Fixed IPs are provided for two classes of traffic:

  • From Cronofy to external servers
  • From on-premise Exchange servers to Cronofy

All other traffic to Cronofy, including browser-based requests and calls to our API, does not guarantee a fixed set of IPs.

Please note that our Exchange connection utilizes Exchange Web Services API, which means that our services also require HTTPS (TCP, port 443) access to the Exchange Services API endpoint.

Are GCC High Tenants supported?

As GCC High is a government system, we don’t have the approval to use it for testing purposes so we cannot guarantee that it can always be connected.

At present, attempting a connection via Individual Connect will not work. However, in some cases this is possible to set up via Enterprise Connect. To do so, we need to have access to your Exchange/Office365 tenant and be able to connect to it, meaning you would need to allow Cronofy’s access in any external connections’ security policies you might have.
