Deleting a user account


When deleting a user account, all data associated with this user account will be deleted. This operation is not reversible.

  1. Authenticate to the cloud platform via the Python shell.

    The following variables should be available now:

    >>> base_url  # the base URL of the API
    >>> auth  # the 'Authorization' header value with the access token
    {'Authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsImtpZCI6ImMwMD...'}
    >>> tenant_id  # the UUID of the tenant to which the token provides access
  2. Assign the user_id variable the UUID of a user account created via the API or a user account found via search:

    >>> user_id = created_user_id
    >>> user_id
  3. Disable the user account as described in “Disabling/enabling a user account”.

  4. Fetch the revision number of the user account as described in the chapters above. The following variable should be available now:

    >>> version
  5. Define a variable named params, and then assign the version query string parameter to this variable:

    >>> params = {
    ...     'version': version
    ... }


    Value type






    Revision number.

  6. Send a DELETE request to the /users/{user_id} endpoint:

    >>> response = requests.delete(f'{base_url}/users/{user_id}', headers=auth, params=params)
  7. Check the status code of the response:

    >>> response.status_code

    Status code 204 means that the user account has been deleted.

    A different status code means that an error has occurred. For the details, refer to “Status and error codes”.
