restrict the API: either on or off.
But for monitoring, you have a chance. There are some real time log file analyzer. There you configure a pattern and then they throw an alert when found.
Nagios can do such things - but there are other products, too.
@Nic Brough [Adaptavist], you are so right! That was last in 6.4.14 possible. But who on earth would really like to disable the REST API? That's the main feature of Jira ;)
@QuentinBNic is right. You cannot turn it off in Jira. But you can restrict the specific API URLs and let localhost requests pass through within a proxy in front of Jira. This would also mean, that you could disable some of the REST calls, only.
The side effect - logging will be inclusive.
