Disabling the Admin Panel in Bitwarden Version 2024.5.0 – Need Assistance

Hello everyone,

I’m currently setting up a self-hosted instance of Bitwarden Version 2024.5.0 and am trying to figure out if it’s possible to completely disable the admin panel.

Here are the steps I’ve taken so far:
stop bitwarden-admin container

Am I missing something, or is there a specific procedure I should follow to disable the panel in this version?

Any advice or experiences you could share would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps some of you have encountered and successfully resolved a similar issue?

Thank you in advance!

@Verax Hi! Well, I don’t self-host, but the admin console seems to be “part of the program”. So I don’t get the “issue” here… (and thinking aloud: the admin console is restricted to admins - so probably only you should have access to the admin console… what’s not okay with that?)
