    I have it enabled because there are a couple partner apps that are pulling information from my site. But I wonder if anyone else is querying my data? I know there is no way to control who is pulling the info, so I just would like to see if anyone is abusing this or is pulling data without my knowledge?

    I’m afraid there is no way for you to see who’s using that data, since the API pages are hosted on WordPress.com.

    I was afraid of that. Thanks for the reply though!

    Oh, as a “Jetpack Mechanic”, any chance of submitting this as a possible future enhancement? It sure would be nice to be able to one day see who’s actually accessing my data and even better to one day control it!

    Since the pages are opened to the public, just about any bot would be able to crawl those pages. If we were to track visits to those pages, we’d have to remove activity from bots.

    However, since the pages are in the json format, I assume that only bots would visit them, making it hard to track things.

    What kind of data would you find useful? Number of requests per app?

    I would just like to know what people are requesting. I have talked to a few people about json access so I know they are accessing my data. But I have no idea who else is out there that might be pulling the data without my knowledge.

    So you’d be more interested in the number of requests per endpoint, then? For example, “3 requests to /posts/$post_id today”?
