Bot Management

Bot Management enables you to mitigate undesired bot traffic from your site using CAPTCHA and JavaScript detection tools while enabling known published bot providers to bypass these controls.

Non-human traffic makes up most of the traffic to sites. Bot Manager is designed to detect and block, or otherwise direct, non-human traffic that can interfere with site operations. The Bot Manager features mitigate bots that conduct content and price scraping, vulnerability scanning, comment spam, brute force attacks, and application-layer DDoS attacks. You can also manage the good bot whitelist.


When you enable Bot Management, you incur a higher rate on requests to the WAF.
