Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-2573) Ability to delete users for gateway admins
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2018 16:40:04 GMT


Eroma commented on AIRAVATA-2573:

1. User deletion make sense for users who have got the initial account creation issues (junk
account, email is incorrect, never got the verification link, etc...). accounts that never
got either email verified or enabled. Deleting these make sense.

2. What about user accounts that used the gateway, have experimental data? More than deleting
the account these accounts should be grouped meaningful to the gateway admin. If the user
was inactive for a defined X duration group them a 'Inactive'. If the user is blacklisted
and admin doesn't want them to use the gateway anymore group them as 'Blacklisted'. If user
is enabled but never used the gateway at least ones they can either fall to 'inactive' or
'blacklisted' group. But any of these should be reversible by the gateway admin if decided

3. Another situation that got our attention is that when one gateway account doesn't work
users go on creating multiple accounts using he same email. This again collects unused accounts
in the gateway. In production gateways we should restrict users creating multiple accounts
using the same email. This will force the user to get the account fixed contacting the gateway
admin. But for ease of testing the development and staging gateways should be able to create
accounts using same email. So we should have a way of enabling this feature at each gateway

> In the gateway currently deleting users are not possible for gateway admins. A new requirement
has come to have delete user feature implemented.
> Thi requirement is to delete abundant or unused usr accounts. Users will go on creating
multiple accounts one after the other if they have login or access issues in the gateway.
Gateway admins will be left to deal with multiple unused accounts from the same user in the
gateway. At a scenario like this ability to delete the user accounts make sense. But from
gateway development and implementation point of view there are much to consider. When deleting
the user accounts do we;
> 1. Consider whether they are active in the gateway? meaning is the email been verified?
have thye given a active role?
> 2. Have they submitted at least a single experiment? If so do we let the user to be deleted?
What about his experimental data?
> 3. Have they created any projects?
> 4. Have they shared any data with others?
