New Public IP for WikiApiary on WMFLabs
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

We need a public IP address for the new WikiApiary server but there does not seem to be a documented method for obtaining one on WMFLabs.

Event Timeline

https://horizon.wikimedia.org/project/access_and_security/ and tab "Floating IPs" will tell you if you have any etc.

I don't know if this a question that necessarily needs an answer... But why do you need a public ip? Is this to point your domains A record at once the project has been moved to labs?

If it's just for running a webserver you don't really need one. Then it can just be behind the web proxy like most projects with web servers. You can create a new proxy by clicking in the UI. https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Proxy

If you still think you need one, then see here how to request it: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Addresses#Request_a_Public_IP_address

this is following the template at T140904

This is probably enough for us. We'll probably be starting this up this week.

It sounds like you don't need a quota change, so I'm closing this for now. Feel free to open a quota request if you turn out to really need the IP -- I suspect you'll find the proxy system better though :)
