Firewall blocking WP editor updates

Hi there,

Cloudflare WAF is blocking updates in the new WP editor.
I see in the console that POST request to /wp-json/wp/v2/products/PRODUCT_ID are returning a 403 error.
What is the best way to fix this?
Whitelisting my IP is not an option because we are multiple people with dynamic IPs working on the website content.

PS: I’m using default firewall rules (including Cloudflare WordPress and OWASP Slr Et WordPress Attacks)

This sounds familiar. I believe I had to disable something in WAF. Check the Firewall Events Log to see which rule is triggering, then disable it.

For a quick workaround, you can create a Firewall rule that matches with POST method, URL path /wp-json/wp/v2/products/PRODUCT_ID and use Bypass action to bypass WAF managed Rules.
