I have a problem with personal spaces being left in Confluence after a user has been removed from the network. Authentication and users via LDAP. I had assumed that when a user is removed from the LDAP source I would still get to delete the user from Confluence and this would therefore remove the personal space. Recently I am finding that the user no longer exists in Confluence and yet the space is still present - when I am informed they are removed from Active Directory I find there is no user record in Confluence at all. Has anyone else seen this problem?
One oddity I find is that the pages from the Space have already been deleted - would this somehow break the link between space and user if no authored content remained?
