Cloudflare is blocking google bot after firewall

My website was under attack.
The main country (the one where the attack started) were united states and canada.
So I blocked the whole noth america continent from the firewall and the ddos stop. But I’m noticing, the firewall is also blocking google bot and bing bot.
Is this normal? How to allow them?

If your firewall rule you can exclude Known Bots:

Thank you!

I did as you say but I see this way still blocked this IP
35.245.188.175
Which belongs to Google

That’s not a letigimate Googlebot. That looks like someone’s cloud instance hosted at Google.
175.188.245.35.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer 175.188.245.35.bc.googleusercontent.com.
