IP targets

{
"ipAddressTarget": {
"addresses": [
"205.112.45.0/24",
"118.16.78.34"
]
},
}

Contains addresses which is a comma seperated array of IP values. You can add multiple IP addresses by separating each individual one by a comma. For instance, inputting 118.16.78.34, 205.112.45.0/24 will match any of 118.16.78.34 and 205.112.45.0 through to 205.112.45.255. The IP targets follow the CIDR notation.
