User groups Global IP block exemption policies and information
This page offers information about the 'global-ipblock-exempt' global user group.

The global IP block exemption is a global group that allows users to bypass global IP blocks and rangeblocks. This permission is only assigned to users that have demonstrated a need for it, and usually on a temporary basis. Users may request access to global-ipblock-exempt at Steward requests/Global permissions.

This permission allows the user to bypass global IP blocks and rangeblocks, but not local IP blocks and rangeblocks; for which a local IP block exemption is needed.
