User Departure and Resources Lifecycle
The Account Management service enforces the standard lifecycle for computing resources at CERN: personal
resources (Primary and Secondary accounts) are first blocked and then deleted, while
official resources (Service accounts) are automatically transferred to the user's supervisor.
More in detail:
- 60, 27 and 7 days before a user leaves CERN, a mail notification will remind him or her to reassign
his own Service accounts (and other official resources) to the most appropriate person. If 7 days before the
departure the user will still own resources that need to be reassigned, the user's supervisor will receive
a reminder as well, with the list of all the official resources still owned by the supervisee.
- On the contract end date, Service accounts still belonging to the user will be transferred to the user's
- 60 days after a user has left CERN, Primary and Secondary accounts will be blocked, and all static
E-Groups memberships will be deleted. This grace period allows the user to still access personal resources
after he or she has left CERN.
- 180 days after a user has left CERN, Primary and Secondary accounts will be deleted. This grace period
allows recovery if the user gets a new contract (e.g. affiliation renewal).
