CA Automic Workload Automation
On Automic Workload Automation, when deleting old users, the following error appears:
Therefore the users are unable to be deleted.
- There are not-deactivated tasks by that user.
Go to client on which you wish to remove the user > open Process Monitoring Perspective > Filter > Time Frame: select the suitable time range & User Object: select the user that you want to remove
Click Filter button (leaving option Include deactivated tasks unchecked) > then you should see the tasks that are still active under that particular user
Cleaning the tasks that are not deactivated then remove the user.
Workaround that can be applied in case it is still not working:
Option 1: Disable/Rename the user can help prevent the security risks while still be able to keep the statistics of that user.
Option 2: Use SQL query to search and deactivate tasks under the execution of that user and then delete it (please contact Customer Support for SQL queries)
