What happens to drafts when user is deactivated?

Are the drafts deleted or kept? If the later, how can they be deleted?

Are the drafts deleted when the page the draft was saved from is deleted?

Hi Anne,

Deactivating a user does not delete content that originally belonged to the user. Drafts will still be available when the user is activated again. Since it is only visible to the user, there is no option to delete it from the UI to system administrators or other users.

Drafts will be deleted when the original page is deleted.

Hope that helps.
