Using a Custom File to Delete Users

To locate and delete users, you can create a custom file of user IDs by using a text editor.

Before You Begin

1. Create a text file that lists each user ID that you want to delete on a separate line.

2. Upload the custom file with the first node of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager server. See Chapter 2, "Uploading and Downloading Files."

To delete users by using a custom file, use the following procedure.


Note Do not use the insert or export transaction files that are created with bat.xlt for the delete transaction. Instead, you must create a custom file with details of the user records that need to be deleted. Use only this file for the delete transaction. In this custom delete file, you do not need a header, and you can enter values for user ID.


Procedure


Step 1 Choose Bulk Administration > Users > Delete Users > Custom File.

The Find and List Users - Delete Users Based on Custom File window displays.

Step 2 In Delete Users where drop-down list box, choose one of the following criteria:

User ID

First Name

Middle Name

Last Name

Department

Step 3 In the Custom file where drop-down list box, choose the filename for the custom file.

Step 4 To check that the query includes the information that you need, click Find.

Step 5 In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.

Step 6 To delete user records immediately, click the Run Immediately radio button. Click Run Later to delete the user records at a later time.

Step 7 To create a job for deleting the user records, click Submit.

Step 8 To schedule and/or activate this job, use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu.
