Our Jira Service Management project is an internal Service Desk. I want to understand what the best-practice is when we are offboarding staff who have left the business. Should we a) Delete the account or b) Revoke the access?
I understand Delete is removing the account but will all tickets stay in the system for record/reporting purposes? If so Delete sounds good. I would assume Revoke is only going to be if there is a chance we need to re-enable the person in the future.
If I delete can I add the same e-mail address again in the future? (albeit without the new account having access to the old account's history.)
Thanks for any clarity you can give me on this.
Hi @Jeff Wynne ,
i feel like revoke is the best option here.
Delete will really remove the account so 99% sure the history will also be gone. Haven't had a need to re-invite someone that created a new account on an "old" email but since internally they have a long account id (like a guid) I fear the new account might have another one.
Going by this article some information is retained but they will show as "Former User" if you delete them.
Like the articles says, start with revoke to be safe, you can always delete later on:)
Thank you @Dirk Ronsmans - very helpful. I think just based on the screenshot in that article which shows the 'former user' replacement text, it's going to make sense to go with Revoke rather than Delete. I will want the reporter name along with the issue itself for historical records.
