Is it possible to turn off all access to the QRS?

Is there a setting to deny any and all users from accessing the Qlik Repository Service (QRS) API in Qlik Sense 3.1?

Besides stopping the service? Well, you could try an authenticating firewall and only whitelist the service account used for the QRS service. Disallowing access to https://machine_name:4242/* from machines other than itself might work.

"Stopping the service" meaning Qlik Sense entirely?

The problem is my environment is client facing and we use a custom domain for our clients to log in.

No, just stopping the QRS service. Yes, that actually does mean effectively shutting down Qlik Sense entirely. It's not a serious option. The QRS API is access at port 4242. If you can prevent access on that port to any connections not originating on the machine itself or from other machines you control (like rim nodes if you have a multi node setup), then that might do the trick.
