SharePoint Access Requests Settings - Where are they?

Occasional Visitor



We want to turn off external users requesting access to our SharePoint site. I've seen several articles (e.g.  saying to "Go to Settings Site Permissions." but there is no such option in the SharePoint admin center under "Settings".

Has this moved or been removed?

Or am I looking in the wrong place?

This setting is not in SharePoint admin center, you can find this setting on individual SharePoint site (collection).

  1. Go to Settings --> Site permissions

  2. Under Site Sharing, click Change how members can share


Alternatively you can also find these settings under Advanced permissions settings (<siteUrl>/_layouts/15/user.aspx) - Classic experience way:
