Disable self registration in Canvas Parent

Community Contributor

We create our Observers using the SIS import and want to disable self registration in Canvas Parent as we have self registration disabled in the Canvas settings.  It seems that if we disable self registration on the Canvas site it should also disable self registration in the Canvas Parent app.  The main reason is to make it easier for parents since we are linking them in the SIS Import with the Users_Observers file. 

If a parent logs in Canvas Student they are automatically linked to their students - no extra steps required.   Why don't the apps function the same? 

Any one else support this?  Thoughts? Ideas?
