How do I remove people from putting names? I have an API system I want in there

I only want display names not names.

In your site settings, you can turn off “enable names”

Do you want to use names but populate the name field via the API? If that’s the case, the recommended solution is generally DiscourseConnect - Official Single-Sign-On for Discourse (sso).

But if you really want names enabled (making David’s solution not what you want) and don’t want SSO (which is how most people solve what I think your problem is) then you could populate it with your API Magic and hide or otherwise change the ability to edit it in the UX with a theme component.
