This article will outline what needs to be whitelisted on all company devices to ensure that the HotSchedules application can be fully utilized. Additionally, if you are integrating with HotSchedules, there will likely be some additional configuration required on either your POS server or your BOH machine. For more information on integrating with HotSchedules, view HS: Integration Fact Sheet.
HotSchedules Web Applications
The HotSchedules corporate website and application are now decoupled to improve performance and speed on both. The HotSchedules application web address is app.hotschedules.com: https://app.hotschedules.com/hs/login.jsp
- If you can access the URL above, then you’re all set! No change needs to be made
- If you cannot access the URL above, additional whitelisting steps should be made
Please note: These changes are for access to HotSchedules Web and Mobile Applications. If you are updating your firewall for integrating with HotSchedules, make sure to also check the HotSchedules Integrations section bellow.
HotSchedules Customer Integrations
You will need to add the following IP prefixes into your existing whitelisting. IP prefixes are recommended in place of white-listing based on particular new IP addresses, to help simplify implementation whilst providing protection against future change or future requirements.
Multiple ranges are required as we operate our platform across multiple locations in multiple regions to ensure the scalability and availability of service.
These prefixes should be whitelisted for access to HotSchedules on TCP ports 80, 443 and 8020.
Any customer or 3rd parties that integrate with our services.hotschedules.com API will need to ensure that any white-listing is prepared as above. As an API endpoint this is however much less likely subjected to white-listing.
If you also integrate with the HotSchedules SFTP service, you will need to add TCP port 22 to the above list of ports.
Our SFTP service will be receiving a new FQDN (hs-sftp.hotschedules.com) which will point to the new cloud service within the above ranges. We strongly recommend connecting to our SFTP service via FQDN (rather than IP address) to ensure the availability of our services.
