Description Robin Norwood 2005-11-05 19:16:21 UTC
User deletion in hosted almost never works.  We should allow user
disabling/enabling via the API instead.

Comment 1 Michael Bowman 2005-11-08 15:56:52 UTC
User deletion is not allowed in hosted. It should *never* work ;)

Added disable/enable functionality to the api. This works in both hosted and

Test plan
- Make sure you cannot delete users via the api in hosted
- Make sure you can delete users via the api in satellite
- Make sure you can enable/disable users in both environments. You should check
for the same functionality and use cases through the api as we have through the
web-ui; i.e., org admin -> normal user, org admin -> org admin, org admin ->
self, org admin -> self when last in org, etc..

Not sure how this slipped through the cracks...but it should be aligned with 410.

Comment 3 Brandon Perkins 2006-06-28 17:14:19 UTC
Looks like this should have been on QA since 2005-11-08.

Comment 4 Brandon Perkins 2006-06-28 17:16:28 UTC
