Remove user who created items

We are planning to remove a user who left the company, but he created a lot of items in our Conluence enviroment.

Can we just remove that user and all his work is still available, or do we need to rename his account?

Tried to find the answer, but could not find it.

Hi @Cris van den Dungen 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

If you delete the users account, any content they created will be maintained. If you're trying to reduce your license count, or only need to remove a someone's access to Confluence, you should disable their account instead. You can read more about this on this link.

Yes thank you for the quick reply. We will disable the account for now and remove it at a later date.
