Prevent deleting of abandoned, unactivated accounts?

Hi,

I’m looking to disable a number of SSO users.

The thread below confirms only those with no posts will be deleted (good), but I’m hoping to prevent all users created/synced via sso from being deleted in discourse no matter what their post count.

I do want discourse to keep deleting spam/invalid accounts.

Is such a thing possible?

You can hide delete button for all users using HTML customization.

Set the site setting purge unactivated users grace period days to 0 to never purge unactivated users automatically :slight_smile:

Hi Vinoth!,
Thanks for the suggestion. In my case its the Discourse system user that I need to modify the behaviour of so I suspect I’ll need something lower level.

My understanding is that setting will stop Discourse (system user) from deleting spam accounts - is that the case?

thanks again to both of you,
Karl.

This is only about users that registered but never activated their account by clicking the link in the email they got – it has nothing to do with spam per se :slight_smile:
