How to i disable REST API calls on JIRA?

I have someone run a script which makes calls to REAT API every few minutes and for some reason that script fails and throws errors in my logs.

How do i disable any calls made to REST API?

This widget could not be displayed.

Goto Administration > System > General Configuration. Then click the Edit settings button and turn Accept remote API calls off.

Please update - there is no Accept remote API calls option in General Config Edit for the Server Edition

In Jira 7.3.2, the settings "Accept remote API calls" is no more available ? Someone knows how to restore this feature ?

Thanks in advance.

It was removed late in 6.something if my memory serves.

This is because Jira now uses its own REST interface to fetch some of its own data.  Turning it off will stop a good chunk of Jira from working.

So, you can't disable it any more.
