I tryed to delete user from my ldap, and connect reconnect to CDSW but user always appear.


My question:

Thx for your help

Hi @Silentd 


Currently, It is not possible to delete users in CDSW. You can only disable them. User deletion is not straight forward in CDSW since a user can have a lot of history/references (through sessions, job runs, projects, etc) that also need to be handled. The efforts are ongoing to include a feature to delete users in future releases.
