Can I remove the original admin account that was created while installing Confluence?

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,

-Bill

Great, thank you.

Hi Bill,

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.
