Power tools delete a specified user Cal

Hi,

How do I use power tools to delete a specified User Cal. I think I have to create a text file of the users  to read in that need to be deleted, but I do not know what format the text fie needs to be in.

Also, is this the correct syntax for the cmd line?   qv-user-manager.exe --remove cal < C:\Temp\Users.txt

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!!

Re: Power tools delete a specified user Cal

Ok, so I figured out the correct syntax in the cmd prompt to remove a specified user cal without reading a text file: 

echo Server\johndoe | qv-user-manager --remove=CAL

However, I get a message saying 'No document CAL to be removed'. The user I am trying to delete has been inactive for more than 24 hours.  Does this tool only remove users who have been inactive for more than 30days?   Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: Power tools delete a specified user Cal

Hi,

I looked into the code for the qv-user-manager (found in GitHub https://github.com/braathen/qv-user-manager).

and the tool can only remove user CALs that have been inactive for more than 30 days!

This 30 days limit is hardcoded in the tool and is not configurable (yet :-).

And it is not possible to specify what user CALs to be removed!

The removal of specified users works only for DMS.
