This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

This configuration directive was added in version 6.0.

Limits the resources that can be acquired by the Data API on a field by field basis.

Multiple descriptions can be written for each resource type using this configuration directive.

An example usage might be allowing the retrieval of your blog’s name and URL while blocking the retrieval of user information.

For more information on resources and fields that can be retrieved by the Data API and setting samples, please refer to the Data API Quick Reference document.
