We're still in our trial period on confluence. I need to delete some generic users I created but they own content. How can I get rid of those users. I need to add real users and the system won't let me. Can I transfer ownership of the contenct created by the old users to another user?
Because content is tied to user account, we don't recommend deleting users. To free up license seats (and block access) all you have to do is remove all the group permissions from the user you want to remove. Once they no longer belong to the "user" group, your license will free up that spot.
Extra (updated) details:
My other comment is true for all deployments of JIRA/Confluence, both download and OnDemand. With OnDemand, you also want to go into "Application Access" under the admin panel and deselect all the check-boxes for the removed user to clear them from your license.
