Hello Martin,

Thanks for the answer.
I was hoping to find a way to remove the user or at the very least hide them 
from the ADMIN user page.

After a small research in the database, I found a column called "ACTIVE" in the 
galaxy_user table.
Can that column help me at all?

OR

I could write a script that search all the deleted/purged users, picks up their 
ID in the galaxy_user table and destroys all the lines in all the tables that 
has that FOREIGN KEY???

Let me know what you think…

Hi Edgar,

there is no built-in way in Galaxy to remove a user completely. 'Deleting' just 
flips the flag in the DB and 'purging' is related to their data/histories. You 
need to access the DB directly if you want to completely remove a user. Beware 
that there might be constraints/relations attached to the user row.

Thanks for using Galaxy,

Martin

Hello gents!

I’ve successfully got my version 16.04 up and running and everything is still 
there (user, groups roles, data and tools).
Unfortunately , I’m still having a problem with deleting a user. I’ve purge him 
and then I deleted him.
but, he still shows up in my list of users as "purged".

Is there a way to completely remove him from galaxy?
Do I need to run a script in a cron job to clean my galaxy periodically?

Thanks in advance!
