Can I block a user in WebCenter without losing any information?
Is it possible to prevent a specific user from logging in without losing data?
It is possibly to prevent a specific user from logging in to WebCenter, without removing the user or any related data from the system. Follow these steps to make sure a particular user cannot login anymore:
Older versions of WebCenter: Using the Password and Confirm Password fields, set the user's password to something else.
|In case this particular user is an LDAP user, you will need to switch the user to basic authentication first.|
In case the Forgot Password? link is enabled on the Login screen, and you only changed the user's password (did not switch off authentication), the user will still be able to request a new login and access the system.
In case you would like to delete a user from the system completely, note that there may be dependencies involved. If so, ongoing tasks and approvals may be automatically reassigned, meaning certain information in the system would in fact change. Please consider this before deleting a user from the system permanently. However, finished tasks and approvals will still show the old user name. Wherever the user name is still mentioned, it will be marked as deleted with a copyright © symbol.
