I'm new to my organization and Atlassian, so thanks in advance for any help! Some details are below:
I saw that merging accounts is not an option, so am looking into how to close out the old account (though my preference is not to delete the account). I'm seeing resources on revoking site access, revoking product access, deactivating accounts - I am wondering what the differences between all of these options are (and there might be other options, too), and what would be the best to do in this scenario. Because I'm not an org admin I know I can't deactivate the account, and was wondering if the "Revoke site access" option (shown here) is suitable.

With product access you can control which products the user should have access to. Given the example you are using Jira and Confluence in your site - User A could have access to Jira, User B to Confluence, User C to both.
By revoking site access the user will not be able anymore to use the complete site (think of Jira + Confluence).
Other than removing a user from a site: the user will be removed permanently (this time they also do not count against the bill as for licensed users).
Thanks for walking through this, Daniel! Once site access is revoked for a user, what happens to content they've created or places they are tagged? Can you still see their old account name or is that no longer the case? I'm assuming they can no longer be tagged in new pages.
👋 Hi there, a few of us at Atlassian would love to learn about how you use "space settings" functionality in Confluence. A facelift to the space settings is long overdue and we want to start with im...
