Allow Moonlit to Scrape your Website

Some of Moonlit’s core functionalities require web scraping. That includes “Apps” that use functions such as the Sitemap Extractor, or Webpage Scraper, and also for the “Import from Website” option in the knowledge base. However, some websites are protected by anti-bot services, so in this guide we’ll show you how you can whitelist requests coming from Moonlit’s server.

How Moonlit Scraping Bot Identifies itself

A user agent is a short string identifier for an agent performing a web request. Moonlit’s User Agent string is:

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Moonlit/1.0; +

Depending on your hosting provider or security software, you can add rules that allow this user agent to scrape your website.

Whitelisting in Robots.txt

If you have custom rules set in your site’s robots.txt file you can whitelist moonlit by adding the following lines:

User-agent: Moonlit
