Inactivating user accounts

If it is necessary, you can inactivate a user's account without removing it from the system in Cloudera Data Visualization (CDV).

You must have administrative privileges to perform this action.

The following steps demonstrate how to inactivate a CDV user account.

  1. Click the Gear icon on the main navigation bar to open the Administration menu.
  2. Click Users & Groups.
    The Manage Users & Groups interface appears, open on the Users tab.
  3. In the list of Users, click either the Username of the account you want to inactivate, or the Edit (Pencil) icon.
  4. In the Edit User modal window, select Inactive.
  5. Click SAVE.

After the operation succeeds, you can see the Users list on the screen. The inactiveated user is part of the list, and the status shown is set to inactive.
