Hi Oren,

I am posting the answer given to the galaxy-dev mailing list below for other users, even thought this is a development topic. Next time, please only post to a single mailing list.


Thanks!

Hi Oren,

Hrm, it looks like the option to delete users was removed from the interface since it couldn't be made conditional on a configuration setting (due to a limitation in Galaxy's "Grids" feature, which is used to display the table of users in the UI). They can be added by uncommented lines 98-100 in lib/galaxy/web/controllers/admin.py:

#operations.append( grids.GridOperation( "Delete", condition=( lambda item: not item.deleted ), allow_multiple=True ) ) #operations.append( grids.GridOperation( "Undelete", condition=( lambda item: item.deleted and not item.purged ), allow_multiple=True ) ) #operations.append( grids.GridOperation( "Purge", condition=( lambda item: item.deleted and not item.purged ), allow_multiple=True ) )

> 2. Which call in the code deletes a user? I can then write my own API method. mark_user_deleted() in lib/galaxy/web/base/controller.py. The preferred method for implementing API methods is by moving the code in the web UI controller which performs the actual action to lib/galaxy/actions/ and then changing the API and UI methods to call that method. See the implementation of the Quota API for a reference.

Thanks for reporting these, we'll fix them as soon as possible. I've created a bitbucket here to track them:

Dear All,
Is it possible to delete a galaxy user or multiple users with a UI call
or an API call?
Thanks,
Oren
