Disabling Request Access link from the Access Denied Page in SharePoint

Sometime we gets below error while accessing SharePoint website which we are not authorized to access.

It's painful exercise for SP Administrator to maintain request coming through "Request Access" url, as shown in above diagram.

Remove the Request Access link from the user name dropdown in SharePoint 2010.
Getting tired of users clicking the request access all over your SharePoint sites? By flipping a check box on the Site Admin page you can remove the link from showing on the site and the access denied pages.

  • Go to Site Actions and select Site Settings.

  • Click on Site Permissions under the Users and Permissions group.

  • Click on the Manage Access Requests link

  • Uncheck the Allow requests for access checkbox and then OK

Now your users will have to contact your support through the channels that you specify.
