Purge users

Know more about purging user data in Learning Manager.

Overview

Use the purge user feature to remove personal identifiable information and learning records of the user from Learning Manager. Note that Delete and Purge User are two different features. While a deleted user can be restored, all user data and learning records associated with a purged user cannot be restored.

Huomautus:

Purge user action can have the following results:

  • If a user is purged, the links in import logs does not work to avoid the download of old CSVs and bringing back the user data again into the system.
  • If an Author is purged, his name is replaced by the name of the Admin who purged that user.
  • If Instructors are purged, they are removed from sessions. Admin has to replace/add instructors for such sessions.
  • Purging a user in Prime does not remove the user in any external applications (third-party systems or other applications written by you). Contact external application owners to get the users removed from such applications.
  • If a purged user is referred in the configuration settings of a connector, the connector is disabled. The connector needs to be reconfigured by the Admin to resume.

To purge users, follow these steps:

  1. As an Administrator, select Users from the left pane. The Internal Users page opens.

  2. Delete the users you want to purge. To delete, select one or more users using the checkbox. Open the Action drop-down and select Delete User.

  3. In the left pane, select User Cleanup. The User Cleanup page appears with the list of deleted users. Use the radio buttons to select the user to purge. You can only purge one user at a time.

  6. Once you confirm and click Purge, the purge request is accepted. You receive a notification once the action is complete. A purge request ID is also provided. You can provide this ID to the CSM to track the request.

Bulk purge of users

You can select the first 50 users and purge the users in one shot. This allows Administrators to select 50 users at once and purge them together. This helps Administrators when they wish to purge users in bulk. It's always a best practice to check the users who are selected for purging. This is important to ensure only the correct set of users are getting purged.
