I’m working on the plugin that will allow our users to insert posts from a SaaS application by single click.
The case is, that when the Wordfence is active, it is blocking the request.
We tried multiple solutions found on the web:
– Turing firewall into learning mode
– Disabling firewall
– Disabling bot protection
– Whitelisting IP (SaaS have dynamic IP, so this is not good long term solution for us anyway).
– Whitelisting URLs
But in live traffic, we still see our requests as bot request that is blocked with error message 401, what we checked in server logs.
When we turn off the WordFence everything is working fine.
We are using standard REST API with POST method and single content parameter.
Do you have any suggestions for us?
