Does WAF Custom rule block ahrefs bot?

I have a WAF Custom rule that challenges all non-US traffic since I am a US based local business. Will this rule block the ahrefs bot?

I read that CF automatically allows ahrefs, but if my custom rule will block ahrefs, do I need to add the ip’s manually using IP access rules?

If so, is there an easy way to add a list of ip’s? I wasn’t able to add a range using this format, for example: 192.155.25.5-25. It seems to only accept CIDR notation.

You can simply add cf.client.bot to your expression, which will skip requests from bots recognised by Cloudflare, including the one you mentioned.
