Purging Users

Prerequisites: Users require site administrator permissions to complete this task.

Purging users permanently deletes users from the Cartella database.

Purging a user:

  • Cancels all their user and group-given permissions.
  • Removes the user from the User Profile Directory.
  • Permanently deletes all their created or authored items.
  • Permanently revokes their access to their Cartella account.

Purged users cannot be restored.
If your database becomes excessively large, purging may improve Cartella’s performance.

  2. Navigate to Settings > Users.
