Can you restrict people from creating a profile in Jira?

Earlier today, I had an employee click on a link to Jira and they were able to create a profile with site access on my instance of Jira. Until today, I was under the impression that unless I invite a particular email address to join Jira, these links were useless to other people. I currently have groups and permissions set up to where these "rouge" users cannot access any of my projects, but I am concerned about the licenses they take up. If 100 users click this link and follow the prompt to create a profile, I will be above my number of available licenses. How do I prevent this?

Hey Justin,

I'm quoting the documentation here because that sounds like the invitation URLs available in cloud:

You can share the Invite URLs with your teammates, allowing them to quickly sign up to a specific product. This is useful if you’d like to get a team on-boarded quickly, without having to go though the invitation process.

To send a URL to someone, select the checkbox for either product and copy the URL. After 30 days, the URL expires and a new URL regenerates. Or you can regenerate or turn them off them at any time, rendering the old URL invalid.

Source: Specify how users get site access

So the solution is in the quote as well. Does this answer your question already? :)

Best, Max

Justin that Link is the way to go.

I am attempting to get to the Site Access tab. The page is taking forever to load. Once I can confirm this is the fix I will let you know. Thank you.
