I've found a very strange issue within the User Profile service of SharePoint 2019. First of all some information about our topology:
We are migrating our environment from SharePoin 2010 to SharePoint 2019. The mysites will be migrated at the last phase of the project. Therefor we would like to disable the mysite creation. Within the 'Manage User Permission' you can adjust the settings for the creation of the personal site. But when we modify these settings I get a popup with the message 'Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you'. I already checked many things:
Almost think it's a bug.. but as i'm not 100% sure i'm writing this question.

Hi, I have exactly the same issue on my SP 2019 farm. Did you ever found a solution to this problem?

@Gottfried Jocham, We did login with the farm account on the server. Its not best practice, but the only solution. Also what we notices is that when you change the url of the Mysite Host Location to for example http://fakeurl then you can make the notification. So it looks something related to permissions on the mysite web app itself.

I believe you have to add your account to the User Profile Service Application settings. Go to Central Admin > Manage Service Applications (/_admin/ServiceApplications.aspx). Select the User Profile Service Application, and in the ribbon click Administrators. Then type in you account, click Add, select your account in the user list below, check "Full Control" (which includes the options for Manage Profiles, Manage Audiences, Manage Permissions, Retrieve Data for Search Crawlers, and Manage Social Data), and click Okay. You should now be able to Manage Permissions.
As an aside, make sure you use a service account to crawl your content. You'll also add that service account to the User Profile Service Application Administrators, and give it the Retrieve Data for Search Crawlers permission level only.
