Sandbox items for non-current members

Hi, just wondering, what happens to sandboxed metadata items when a user is removed as a member of the stewardship organisation/registry?


Hello Shane,

Sandboxed metadata items are attached to the user who created them. When a user is removed from the stewardship organisation, the user can still access his/her sandboxed metadata items.

By design, you cannot delete a user from the registry - but a superuser can deactivate the user’s account. Once the account is deactivated, the user’s sandbox metadata items will not be deleted from the system - but the user will no longer be able to log in and so will be unable to access their sandbox items.

Hope this helps. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Kind regards,

Great, thanks Chengwu!
