Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-906) Allow users to be (safely) deleted
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2013 23:46:10 GMT


Glen Mazza commented on ROL-906:

Users presently have the ability to delete their own weblogs, and administrators can change
the passwords of users.  Therefore, an admin can change the user password, log into the blog,
and delete the blog that way.  (Admins don't need to do that for deleting/editing individual
blog entries of a user, I believe such blog editing functionality is already in place.)

We don't need to assign the weblog to another user because the blogger (or the admin, once
he changes the password) can grant ADMIN access to the blog to somebody else, effectively
making the blog owned by that other person.

There really isn't much pressing here, but allow the admin to delete a user if he isn't owner
of any blogs, and (perhaps) simplify the blog deletion process--but making it too easy can
have negative consequences (accidental deletion).

> Allow users to be deleted from system. Since weblog entry records contain a link to the
user, we'll have to figure out what to do to a user's old posts:
> * Do they get deleted from the system? 
> * What if they are in a group blog? 
> * Do the posts get reassigned to another user, even though they were not the author?
