Disable instead of remove deleted LDAP users


is it possible to disable users, that were removed from the LDAP filter instead of removing them from Confluence?

Confluence pages only show unknown user and the user name, which is a number combination for us. So it is not possible to reconstruct, who was the user. (especially after he was removed from the LDAP to)

Thank you for your anwsers and solutions!

As a solution, we now sync the disabled users from JIRA to Confluence on a daily basis.

This is one of the reasons we use a user directory of the type "Internal with LDAP" 

Users can then be disabled instead of removed. 

It has some drawbacks like more administration etc..
