With a Discourse setup that only allows SSO to a corporate infrastructure, what are the recommendations for what action to take when someone leaves?
As I understand it, the options would seem to be:
- Deactivate the account
- Suspend the account
- Delete the account
- Anonymise the account
Some of these are discussed in https://meta.discourse.org/t/suspend-a-user-forever/42629/5 but one of those options - Deactivate the account - doesn’t seem to have a corresponding API call, unless I’m missing it?
I don’t want to delete the account because that would delete the corresponding posts? I don’t want to anonymise the account because that would lose the information as to who posted in the first place.
I could suspend but it looks like I would need to increase the suspend timeout.
Any thoughts on best practice for this scenario?
