Delete an existing user

Use the Delete Existing User API to delete an existing user in the Control Room.


Edit Users
Users who have edit users permissions can delete an existing user.
JSON Web Token (JWT)
All Control Room APIs require a JSON Web Token (JWT) to access the APIs. Generate an authentication token using the Authentication API. See Enterprise 11 Authentication API.

    Replace the content in the angle brackets with your Control Room URL.

    Use the Authentication API to generate a JSON Web Token. See Enterprise 11 Authentication API.

curl -X DELETE "http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/users/15" 
-H "accept: application/json" 
-H "X-Authorization: <authentication_token>" 
-H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "{15}"
