Two functional users in Confluence can't be deactivated

I have two functional users in Confluence which I want to deactivate by deleting their autorization roles. When I try to delete them I get the message:

  • Could not remove user 'tester' as a member of group 'SG_IN_O365_EMS'. Check your server logs for more information

In log I find the next message. Who knows what to do now?

Hi,

I think you have a clue in the log.

Looking at the stack trace it seems that the user you want to remove is part of a group that is read only.

com.atlassian.crowd.exception.ReadOnlyGroupException: Group <SG_IN_O365_EMS> is read-only and cannot be updated.
