Limit creation of sites to specific users

Brass Contributor


Is there a way to specify specific users that can create a site?  Or is it either all users or non?

thank you

Yes, you can restrict site creation in the SPO Admin Center and then you can configure Groups creation in Office 365 by means of an Azure AD Policy

Hi Juan,


I know we can restrict site creation based on all or none, but can one restrict site (not group) creation to specific users?


Thank you

What Juan is referring to is the method detailed here:


It will apply to Communication sites, as they are group-based, however I'm not sure whether it will apply to "regular" sites. According to the help text in the admin portal, it will not:


Users who don't have permission to create Office 365 groups can still create new team sites without the Office 365 group.
Hi Vasil,

I understand about Group restrictions, but as you mention it does not apply for regular site only creation. So with the new admin center, I can turn off "site creation" for all or none. So question still stands if I can set site creation only for a specific set of users.
