Hi Rogier,

I would recommend not removing the user, but removing her access from Confluence.

To do this on server, you can simply remove her from the groups which have been given Can Use access in Confluence:

This will ensure she no longer can access Confluence, and that she will still be able to access Jira.

If you're using the Cloud version, you can do this by going to User Management > Application Access and remove her Confluence access there.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,
