Is it possible to turn off the rest api in Confluence? We recently performed a webscan of Confluence using HP WebInpect and it reported numerous criticals due to the rest api. This could be easily resolved if I can restrict or turn off the rest api.
The only thing you can disable is the "Remote API (XML-RPC & SOAP)" as described here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/enabling-the-remote-api-150460.html
But it is deprecated from Confluence 5.5 on, so they will turn it of someday anyway.
