Check if IP address is a Bot Client Threat using Java

2 min readApr 4, 2022

With real-time signals checking against high-probability bots, our IP bot detection API can add a useful layer of security for your network. It’ll tell you if your input IP string is a bot (true) or not (false). You can implement this API in Java easily & at your convenience using ready-to-run code snippets provided below in this article.

First you’ll need to install the Java SDK. Copy the below to install with Maven, or review instructions to install with Gradle on our Cloudmersive API Console page.

Add a reference to the repository in pom.xml:


Next, add one to the pom.xml dependency:


Last but not least, add the import classes and call the function;

// Import classes:
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiClient;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiException;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.Configuration;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.auth.*;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.NetworkThreatDetectionApi;
ApiClient defaultClient = Configuration.getDefaultApiClient();// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
ApiKeyAuth Apikey = (ApiKeyAuth) defaultClient.getAuthentication("Apikey");
Apikey.setApiKey("YOUR API KEY");
// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)
NetworkThreatDetectionApi apiInstance = new NetworkThreatDetectionApi();
String value = "value_example"; // String | IP address to check, e.g. \"\". The input is a string so be sure to enclose it in double-quotes.
try {
ThreatDetectionBotCheckResponse result = apiInstance.networkThreatDetectionIsBot(value);
} catch (ApiException e) {
System.err.println("Exception when calling NetworkThreatDetectionApi#networkThreatDetectionIsBot");

All you need to do is add your input and API key where indicated, and you’re all set. To get a Cloudmersive API key, you can create a free account on our website and receive a limit of 800 API calls per month.




There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
