Deleting (Deactivating) a User

From time to time, you may wish to delete a user. For example, this may be necessary if an employee permanently leaves your company. It should be noted, that by deleting a user, all their historical records will be lost forever.

If you would rather keep a former employee’s historical records, or keep a user account in expectation of the future return of the employee (contractors especially), refer to Suspending a User.

To delete a user, perform the following steps:

  1. From the main WhiteHat Portal menu, click Admin.

  5. Click the Bulk Actions drop-down and select Delete Users.

  6. When prompted, click Confirm to complete the deletion, or Cancel to abort the deletion.
