Configure Super Bot Fight Mode

What exactly does this do?

“Enable if your website relies on features of WordPress that conflict with Super Bot Fight Mode.”

I believe this option/feature is good to enable because sometimes it knows to happen due to the WordPress using HTTP/1.0 and empty user-agent, therefore while executing WP-Cron or some other related JSON/REST API request via plugin which triggers the WAF rules (as it should normally) and the regular request from some are being challenged or blocked and then they show up on the Firewall Events (Security → Events).

SBFM is good, however in some cases there are requests which trigger them and are being blocked. Customers reported this and the other workaround is to allowlist your origin host / server / hosting IP address by navigating to the Security → WAF → Tools → IP Access Rules with the action “allow” for your Website and try again.

So if your server ip is already whitelisted, then enabling this option would not be necessary?
