View Full Version : Deleting users from deki wiki
09-11-2008, 02:07 PM
I have had a few users leave my company and I wish to remove their accounts from Deki WIki. I have deactivated their accounts but I basically want to remove as much oh them from the wiki as I can. Mostly their personel page and their name from the list of users. Do I need to do this through SQL? I have integrated Deki Wiki with MS AD 2003.

I have the same issue. An employee that was only here for 2 days logged in and now the name is on the user list for everyone to see. How can I remove that person completely.:confused:

Why do people do that. It happens here often. Do not tell someone you can do something in an interview if you cant.
Anyway. I was going to delete the record form the sql table and then I assume that will get ride of the entry in the Users list.
Changing a users display name is easy enough when people get married or divorced.
The delete user feature is high on our list for the next release. Be sure to vote for it in http://forums.developer.mindtouch.com/showthread.php?t=3908 and maybe contribute some thoughts into the spec for it (what happens to their contributions?).
Meanwhile, you can disable the user or rename them (maybe a new employee needs an account? :)) The only way to delete is through sql. If the user has no contributions then it's a simple delete from users table. You may experience issues if the user does have contributions though and it tries to lookup the user.
