SharePoint Community, 

 

I am looking for an answer to manage how and who has the ability to create sites in SharePoint Online. I have some users using the URL - https://contoso.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/CreateGroup.aspx to create communication sites.

 

While I would like to let a specific set of users to be able to create sites, I can't let everyone in the organisation create sites at will. How do I go about achieving this? Also, to make matters more confusing, some users can access the URL alright, the others can't. 

 

I understand this could be related to the Office 365 groups creations and administration around it as well but I am specifically looking for an answer to my question above. 

 

Thanks
