Question: 

How to delete a list of user accounts from CA Roscoe? Is there a way other than deleting them one by one?

Answer: 

The User Accounts will be deleted, but the users' member libraries will be preserved. 

UPSBLK60 can be used to delete user keys. Sign onto the UPS account.

  1. Prepare the list of keys to be deleted in the AWS in the following format
    (Type I on the command line to do this)

    BEGIN DELETE KEY=GREEN
    END
    BEGIN DELETE KEY=BLACK
    END

  2. Execute UPSBLK60 by typing
    UPSBLK60
    This will execute the list of deletions
    Do a ROZAP REFRESH UPS to update the UPS table in memory.

This may also be performed from another account if you have administrator authority.
See the Roscoe System Reference Guide, Section 4.4, Executing UPSBLKnn for more details.
