How do I prevent users creating a board?

I'm about to upgrade from JIRA to JIRA Software. We don't currently use JIRA Agile, but need JIRA Software for source code integration.

Is there a way to prevent users from creating new Scrum and Kanban boards, at least temporarily while we play with the new functions JIRA Software gives us?

I've read that I can take away "Create Shared Objects" permission, but that seems to just stop newly created boards from being visible to anyone else, rather than preventing the ability to create them in the first place. Plus it stops users from creating shared filters.

Do I have any options other than a "please don't touch that button" email?

I guess no direct way to turn it off, no native feature in JIRA Agile/Software.

Information is key so I suggest inform them to stop creating boards for the meantime while you are still evaluating the feature. You can also add a nastygram saying "all boards created will be deleted without notice".
