User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

I would like to restrict access to the New Account Creation page so that only (appropriate) logged in users can add users. Currently any user can create a new account for themselves. I would like only administrators to be able to create new accounts.

This functionality should be optional, as other bugzilla installations will want to allow new users to create their own accounts.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the bugzilla home page, do not login.
2. Click one of the 2 links to createaccount.cgi

Actual Results:  
Able to create an account without already being logged in.

Expected Results:  
No access to Create New Account page.

Only display links to Create New Account page when appropriate (administrator) users are logged in.

administrators add users from editusers.cgi?action=add. You can prevent users from creating user accounts by clearing the 'createemailregexp' parameter in editparams.cgi.

/load/ _the_ Parameters page

(or "go to" if you really like the "go" verb over "load".)

/clear/ _the_ createemailregexp param.
