I opened up a case with Oracle asking if there is a way to delete old profiles when using LDAP. Their response was that they don't recommend deleting old profiles. The issue I have with that response is we can have Brandon Smith in the Active Directory leave and we delete his AD profile, then in a couple months Brad Smith joins we give him the BSMITH user profile in AD but it becomes an issue mirroring up to JDE because we were not able to clear the original BSMITH that belonged to Brandon Smith.
Has there been a BUG or Enhancement Request pertaining to this?
We don't use JDE so I'm not sure how the user profiles are set up there; However, in PeopleSoft, there is an EMPLID on the user profile. When someone leaves and is later rehired, we normally clear their EMPLID from the old profile. In AD the EMPLID is entered on the account (in your example BSMITH) and that allows the association to be made again between AD and the user profile in PeopleSoft. Of course, for the most part, for rehires (at least if they are being hired for a different position) our process is also that a new account is created for the employee in AD with a new user profile name (for example, BSMITH1).
I know they're two different applications, but thought I'd mention this just in case it's at all helpful for you.
We are using LDAP. A coworker did some research so inactive users can be, well, deactivated. Here is a link that may help you. Due to time, my coworker has not pursued it.
It's a little silly that that was Oracle's response. We've created a custom App from P0092 and disabled a single line. In: "/ Work With User / Role Profiles [FIND BROWSE ] / GRID grid / Row is Entered" disable this line: "Disable Control(HC &Delete)".
Now with this custom App you will be able to manually delete the user's profile. We've been using this since 2012 with no issue.
