Deleting and archiving users

A user will be archived and not deleted if:
  • The user is associated to a participant as a user.
  • The user is the creator or modifier of a process.
  • The user is associated to a request or an action.
A user cannot receive an inactive, deleted, or archived status if:
  • The user is the only person assigned as a coordinator to a List of persons.
  • The user is the only person in a group assigned to a List of persons type participant.
  • The user is the only person in a List of persons type participant.

Replacing users

You can replace a user with another one (the user that replaces another user must belong to the same directory and to the same groups). All roles in process definitions will be reassigned to the new user.
Ongoing (open) requests will be reassigned to the new user; closed (historical) actions will maintain the correct participant who performed the action.
This function is useful when a someone leaves their position in the organization and their ongoing tasks and roles must be reassigned.

Unlocking a user account

If a user exceeds the maximum number of connection attempts set in the Configuration Panel, their account will be locked and must be unlocked by an administrator. To do this, open the user’s profile and click the Unlock user button.

Activity report

The user activity report can be generated by selecting the Activity report link in the user’s profile page.
The generated report summarizes all the activities for the selected user, such as:
