Backport IP enforcement FF to 15.10

Merged Adil Farrukh requested to merge cherry-pick-edc62109 into 15-10-stable-ee

What does this MR do and why?

In 15.10 !112756 (merged) enabled strict enforcement of IP allow list on who can create pipelines. This also extends to other areas of IP policy enforcement such as ability to create projects and will help prevent any vulnerabilities within that enforcement. One such issue was reported and therefore it's suggested to backport this FF enablement to 15.10 (also see discussion for why this isn't targeted at a security release)
