On the Manage users tab located on the Global Settings window, administrators can perform two user management functions:
- To reset a user’s settings back to the default settings, click within the user’s row.
- To delete a user, click within the user’s row. Deleting a user does not prevent that user from logging in. But deleting a user deletes that user's dashboards, attribute filters, and schemas, including those that have been shared. Please see the important note about shared objects below.
Since members of other groups may be using objects shared by the user you want to delete, when you attempt to delete a user, the Confirm Delete Action dialog provides a warning. It shows the total number of objects that the user shared (even if that user later unshared them). The only shared dashboards that are counted in this message are the ones that are in use (at least one other user has added the dashboard to their current view).
