403 Status code with country restriction

I have added country restrictions to WAF. Open only on the USA and some specific IP. But while Google Bot tries to crawl our site, a 403 status code occurs and we cannot complete the action. How can I solve this issue while having restrictions?

Hi there,

You may need to allow all bots from your Bot Fight mode settings and/or create another WAF rule to allow User Agent Googlebot.
