When I installed Confluence, I gave the original administrator account a name that does not conform to our username convention here. Since then, I created a new account that does conform and put it into the confluence administrators group. Can I delete the original account without impacting anything, as well as still have access to all administrator functionality? Is there anything special about the original admin account?
Thanks in advance,
There is nothing special about the original account other than it belonging to the confluence-administrators group. You can delete that account as long as you do not have any content added/edited by that user account.
Since you already have another user account in the administrator group, it doesn't matter.
