Delimited range of IPs at IBM Cloud Functions (open whisk)

I am trying using IBM functions (open whisk) with my customers but I am getting troubles whole of them because their firewalls using IPs to allow Access. IBM functions has dynamics and we have to add them to allow rules to works.

Maybe if there are a range of ips or other kind of solution do make Easy IBM Functions Access customers API.

    in reviewing our backlog and product plans the current recommendation is to utililze an API Gateway (API Connect for example) or to utilize secure gateway, directlink, or Satellite Link.

    We currently do not publish an IP range of where Functions action are from because of the size of the IP range using the Softlayer reverse proxy. Using API Connect or Secure Gateway is the current best practice solution. We will take a backlog feature on minimizing the IP range so it could be published.
