Disabling User Ability to Create SharePoint Sites

Consulting

Disabling the ability for users to create SharePoint sites by default is a strategic decision that helps maintain control over your organization's SharePoint environment. It enhances security, ensures compliance, and optimizes resource management. Administrators can maintain a consistent structure, reduce the risk of unauthorized sites, and manage storage more effectively. While users may experience delays in getting new sites created and administrators will have an increased workload, the benefits of a well-organized and secure SharePoint environment outweigh these drawbacks. By centralizing site creation, administrators ensure that all sites adhere to the organization's policies and standards.

In a significant update announced by Microsoft, changes to the management of custom scripts within SharePoint and OneDrive are set to take effect in March 2024. This update primarily revolves around the removal of the Custom Script setting, which previously allowed users to execute custom scripts on personal and self-service created sites. To facilitate a smoother transition, Microsoft has introduced a new PowerShell command, “DelayDenyAddAndCustomizePagesEnforcement.” This command extends the support for custom script settings until mid-November 2024, providing organizations additional time to adjust to the new regulations.
