Hello, I was just wondering if it is possible to restrict the number of form submissions that come from the same IP address.
That’s a shame. Thanks for the reply
I just want to mention that this would be a useful feature for the future. Would be great to not have to store ip addresses for form submissions. Especially when its for non-critical ops (in my case it would be for public voting - so not interested in signing users up nor collecting PII for this).
How else do you plan on blocking submissions then?
There is no practical other way I guess - I would have to store and process IP addresses in my backend or other DBaaS providers (even google sheets). In my case I will probably use pipedream to build a workflow that receives form submissions from Netlify on a schedule, then selects a unique entry for every ip before committing the aggregate to faunadb.
The point I wanted to make is that this could be a potential future feature/service of Netlify. So that the ip processing logic remains within netlify and I only have to select something like “collect unique submissions” (i.e. the first/last one submitted from each ip). Given that Netlify wanted to go down that road and it wasn’t massively complicated to do. So when I say to “not store/process ip addresses” - I mean not outside netlify.
Oh, that makes more sense. Sorry about the confusion. That’s an interesting feature request. We’ll pass it on to the developers.
