This time on OpenAthens 101: A guide for our librarians we are looking at housekeeping and how you can have expired accounts automatically deleted, preventing space being filled and any issues with data protection.
The option can be found in the admin site under Preferences > Organisation. You’ll want to pick a length of time that covers the common uses in your field – e.g. a college might want it set long enough that returning students aren’t deleted over the summer, whilst a corporation might prefer it to be within a week.
Since it is an organisation preference rather than a domain preference, you can have different settings for sub-organisations.
For details on this and other settings such as default expiry dates, see the online documentation at https://docs.openathens.net/display/public/MD/Organisation+preferences
There is a similar setting for local accounts on the page where you set up the connection (Management > Connections)
