How Does It Work?

Incoming traffic will be checked against set IP rules. If these rules match with traffic characteristics, it will be directed towards or away from the defined path, according to the logical condition set in the rule.

Adding a Rule-Based Path for IP Rules

In our example, we will create two paths: one for visitors coming from the defined IP rules, and the other for the rest. Let's assume that you have already added offer and lander elements for both of these paths. In the second step, we will create a condition based on the IP rule. In order to do so, perform the following steps:

  1. In Voluum, click the New campaign button and create a campaign in the advanced form.

  4. Create a rule-based path for IP rules.

    1. Click the Add rule button.

    2. Provide a name for the rule in the Rule name text field.

    3. Select the Other condition category.

    4. Click the Add condition button under the IP section.

  5. Set up a default path for remaining visitors.

    1. In the Default path section, click the New path button.

    2. Provide a name for the default path in the Path name text field.

    3. Select lander and offer elements that you wish to direct unique visitors to.

    4. Click the Save button.

You have successfully created a campaign with a rule-based path for visitors coming from a defined IP range. Right now, each visitor passing through Voluum will be checked against the defined IP range. If Voluum detects that a visitor is coming from that range, it will direct him or her towards a path defined in the rule-based path. The remaining traffic will be directed towards a path defined in the default path.
