User deletion error

Hi

I am on jira 5.0

I created a LDAP authenticated user say (username: abcd) on my jira.

Instantly i realised that i created the user with a typo so i deleted it and recreated it (username: xyz) again with the correct spelling.

Now after that i find a strange behavior when i run an SQL command.

I find that the old deleted user abcd exists on app_user table but not on cwd_user. It is the expected behavior.

I was under the assumption that if i delete a user then its residues are removed from all database tables including app_user.

Hi Rahul,

The app_user table was introduced to enable to rename user functionality, it stores all the usernames that exist or have existed in your instance. It's expected that the usernames of deleted users are still stored in this table.

Cheers
