Configuring Firewall Whitelisting

Some companies and services require Skilljar resources are added to a provider "whitelist". By adding Skilljar domains and resources to a whitelist, these resources are explicitly granted permission to load safely on these networks and within these services. If your organization or service maintains strict security policies by denying access to most or all external websites, it's likely you'll need to add Skilljar and relevant resources to a whitelist. 

​Required Skilljar Domains

If your company whitelists domains, add the following domains to your list of allowed domains:

1. Skilljar Resources
** Note: The following domains are required

  • *.skilljar.com
  • *.sj-cdn.net
  • *.everpath-course-content.s3-accelerate.amazonaws.com

2. Customer-specific Resources

  • Examples:
    • *.company.com
    • training.company.com
    • university.company.com


Third Party Services
 

Skilljar may require whitelisting of the additional third party domains for outbound connections to these services.

Videos uploaded directly to Skilljar are delivered through JWPlayer. The main JWPlayer services are:

  • *.jwpcdn.com
  • *.jwplayer.com
  • *.jwplatform.com
  • *.jwpsrv.com
  • *.jwpltx.com
  • jwpsrv-vh.akamaihd.net

If other content is embedded in Skilljar, it is possible other resources may need to be whitelisted. This may include services like MixPanel, Segment, Vimeo, Wistia, InVision App, Google Suite (Google Forms, Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets, etc.). Please check with your domain administrator for additional information.
