How do I terminate users?
To terminate a user, you must first suspend the user. Suspend any user in your organization by clicking on the "suspend user" button in the user's profile. If there is no chance that the user will need Covisint access at a later date, you have the option to permanently remove a suspended user by clicking on the "permanently remove user" button in the user's profile. To suspend and/or remove users in bulk, use the Audit Users functionality in the Administration menu.
Can I re-activate a permanently removed user?
No, permanently removed users cannot be reactivated. The user will need to re-register to re-obtain access.
What is the difference between "suspended" and "permanently removed"?
Suspension is a state of temporary deactivation. Users, Organizations, and Service Packages can be suspended. It would be appropriate to suspend an employee on medical leave or on a temporary assignment that does not require Covisint access. Once a User, Organization, or Service Package has been suspended the Security Administrator can reactivate the user account when desired, or permanently remove access. A User or Organization that has been permanently removed cannot be reinstated and must re-register to access Covisint applications.
