GeoIP enrichment using Maxmind Lookup API


#1

hi there!

I really like the idea of using Maxmind to get rich data based on user IPs. Currently the enricher requires static DAT files to be hosted on an S3 bucket. But ifs there a way to use Maxmind’s lookup API instead? That would make it more accurate and real-time.
I have a subscription to Maxmind but only for online GeoIP2 Precision lookups directly or through their APIs. But I don’t think i can download DAT files through this subscription.

Thanks very much!

Hi @kjain, that option is not available yet, but it’s a nice suggestion, added a ticket:
