    Deleted users in Search Index, Personal Workspace

    On our Filr system, if we go to Search Index in the Admin interface, then, on the Manage Search Index tab, we expand Personal Workspaces & then expand one of the sections in there, we see a whole lot of old users listed as Deleted - eg:

    Test Senior (Deleted 05-04-2016 9-00 PM 1459890017110) (deleted 05-04-2016 9-00 pm 1459890017110)

    You can then expand those entries & see the deleted user's folders that were in their home directories (which are now deleted, in some cases years ago).
    Not all deleted users show up and we have just recently run a full re-index of them, but they still appear there.

    Just wondering if it's normal for those entries to be there? We assume that means all that data is still stored in the index, so it's making it larger that it ought to be!

    Cheers,
    Ian

    It all depends on how the users were deleted.

    By Default, just the user is deleted, and their workspace is left alone.

    You can opt to delete the users and alongside delete their workspaces too, this will also clear their entries in the ad-hoc area (if enabled) and their places in the index.



    Kind Regards,

    Bart.

    That's what I thought was the case. All our users are synced from eDirectory, so we delete the user in eDir.
    In Filr's LDAP settings, in the For user accounts provisioned from LDAP that are no longer in LDAP section, we have
    Delete account and Also delete associated user workspaces and content selected.

    So that ought to delete the users entirely!

    Cheers,
