Disable user creation on welcome page

Hi, we are using Gitlab 7.8.1 CE. We are also using LDAP for authentication. This means that we would like to disable (or hide) the New User account creation at the welcome page of Gitlab, since we are not creating new users via this method. Is that possible? If yes, how? thanks!

Yes, it is in the same place: Gitlab > Admin Area > Settings, and within that page there is the “Signup Enabled” option. Around middle page scrolling down. At the Sign-in Restrictions sextion.

Hope that helps.

Someone should probably mention that “Settings” is hidden behind the wheel-icon in the upper right corner :slight_smile:

Hi. I went to the same place where I can see the checkbox. But I’m unable to click this. It does not go to switch off state. Can you please help me on it?

Just did a local install for learning (working on Docker net core builds)
But the version I’m using -> Community Edition 9.0.5
Upper Right area there’s a tool icon labeled Admin Area (Click their)
Then the Gear Icon Drop down -> Settings
About 1/3 the way down their should be a Sign-up Restrictions section THAT has the checkbox you can click.
The “Admin Area” you can only See the current settings (Green dot or Power off icon) but not change it.

Is there a way to configure this within the gitlab.rb file?

There seems to be a subtle inconsistency in terms. When signing in, you have by default the option to ‘register’. If you want to disable registering in Admin area > Settings, you won’t find anything referring to this register option. Instead you have to disable (uncheck) ‘Sign-up’ in the section ‘Sign-up Restrictions’. This is a bit unfortunate and could be easily corrected.
