[solved] How do I delete a user


We have a set number of Mattermost licenses and originally created one called Mattermost_admin. Now, with everyone clambering to have an account, we need to turn that one into a regular user. If I deactivate a user am I going to be able to add another one on their license?


Hi @svalowden,

You can delete a user with this CLI command:

Please note that deleting a user will permanently delete them from the database.

Does this answer your question or let me know if you need further assistance on this?


Yes, this answers my question, thanks!
