Hi all.


I'm trying to use API Protection which is new function for KSD 5.0, but I can not understand its input field and its function.

(I read KSD User Guide and blog, but I could not define my API)


If there is API on web site, and its endpoint is below.

URL: www[.]example[.]com/?rest_route=/wp/v2/pages/{id}

Method: GET ( deny other method )


Then, what's parameter should I define?

I'm testing parameter below, but it did not seem to work.

( Response POST method, and through invalid id. For example, www[.]example[.]com/?rest_route=/wp/v2/pages/foobar)
