Is all data deleted by deleting an account?

Deleted user September 5, 2022

Hello,

If all members of a group delete their accounts, is all data, that was uploaded (not only personal data) deleted, or is it saved in the cloud? Who can have access to the data? Thanks for your support!

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Deleting an account only deletes the account.  Confluence will put the users personal space in the bin, and all of the systems will throw away local personal information, but no, all the stuff you're trying to track, share, code for, and report on will be left intact.  It'll just show that the authors are unknown or deleted.

The people who will still have access to the data are the people who had access before you delete the accounts and have not deleted.

Thank you very much :)

Is there a possibility to delete all data? Maybe in combination with deleting all accounts of the group or deleting the data before deleting the account. Or will the data stay forever in the cloud?

No, the point of an issue tracker, documentation system and source code repositories (and the rest) is not to lose data.

Deleting a user's data just because they leave is the complete opposite of what Atlassian systems are for.

Data will only be deleted when you explicitly choose to kill it off.

I understand the  advantages of not loosing data, but I definitly want the data to be deleted. So how can I do that?

You will have to search for and delete the data you want to destroy.
