Restricting JIRA public signup due to spam

I seems our JIRA has been targeted for SPAM due to its "public" mode...

The!default.jspaurl is redirected before the request getting to jira and I can see that no mail is comming in.

Anyway, the attacker creates several accounts a day, costing us 1 license each (unless I de-activate) the user. Going into private mode is not really an option.

Is there a way to disable/secure public signup and let it be allowed by mail only?

Hi Norman,

I thnk there is an option to add a CAPTCHA during registration.

Have a look at the configuration: URL/secure/admin/ViewApplicationProperties.jspa

Maybe that could help.

Kind regards

Thanks, the Capcha is on, but is seems that they are just entering the damn capcha manually (which I btw also see on my personal Confluence :-( )
