The IP Address field stores IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Common uses in IT include router or firewall configuration, network provisioning, and cyber incident management.

Adding an IP Address field

From Grid View

Click the + menu icon after the last column header or open the Column Menu by clicking on a column header's dropdown icon and then select "Add Field to the Right."

Select "IP Address," and a window will open to configure the field. You can search the name for a quick find.

From Record View

The fastest way to add a field from an open Record View to is simply click the + sign next to a current field to add a new field below.

Customizing the field

The IP Address field auto-detects the country and Solution Managers can choose to display the country flag in the field. Solution Managers can also choose to allow single or multiple IP address values, and decide if the field should be required.

IP Address fields are clickable. SmartSuite will open a new window to take members to the associated website if one is present at the IP Address.
