#5039 closed defect (fixed)

Remove legacy 'wp-json' plugin

Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

There's a plugin with a slug of 'wp-json', which is rendered 'invisible', as requests to https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-json/ return a wp-json response for the plugins repository.

The existence of this plugin 'behind' the json response causes issues (it's included in our plugins XML sitemap, and has legacy footprints etc).

Given that it's obviously archaic + dead (see https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/wp-json), not least in part because it's been "hidden" for a long time, can we remove/delete it?
