  1. Thanks for share!… I tried it on WPS 8. However the link don’t disappear but on click user enrollment have been disabled showing the following message: “Users can not be enrolled in this portal, or you do not have permission to perform user enrollment.”

    1. Hi Jose,

      We are not too sure for WPS 8 as we no longer have the environment in our company. Perhaps you can just drop a PMR with IBM.

  2. Hi buddy. This solution is ok for us, because our goal was to disable self enrollment. Now we have already migrated to WPS 8.5 and these steps work fine and the “signup” link has gone! Thank you very much again for share your knowledge and tips.
