Provides instructions on how to purge inactive users from the GridGuard register user registry. This will free up the licenses associated with these accounts, so they can be re-used.
Launch the Administration & Configuration Console, Select the 'Servers' node
Check the 'User Query' filter on each User Store server
Check the User Query setting for each of the servers that are associated with User Stores. The User Query should be structured such that only it will return back only active users.
As an example for an Active Directory server, the User Query should be set to (&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=?)(!(UserAccountControl:1.2.840.1135188.8.131.523:=2))). This will ensure that only active users are allowed to register / be associated with the user store. For other types of LDAP stores, check your reference manual for the appropriate User Query.
Update the User Query, if necessary. After changes are made, click Update Server and Apply Changes to save the changes.
Choose the 'Purge Inactive Users' section
Click the Purge Inactive Users button This will start the process of reconciliation. This process might take a while depending on the number of registered users, network speed, and external user store performance. This process will make many connections to your external user store so it is recommended to be run at times of low activity. Navigating away from the page will not interrupt the process. Please wait for the process to complete.
Reconciliation process - The system compares the list of registered GridGuard users against the entries for these users in the User Stores. If the entry for the user in the User Store cannot be found using the LDAP search query filter associated with the store, then the user will be deleted from GridGuard and the license released.
Note: If a registered GridGuard user is removed from the authorized users group and is not manually unregistered, that user account will still consume a GridGuard license. Please preform a user reset, unregister the user via the ACC, or use the reset REST API to unregister the user to release the user license.
Check the number of Used Licenses
Choose the Current License Information section and click the Refresh Count button
The User Licenses count will be updated. The license count is formatted as (used licenses / purchased licenses)
