    Default [SOLVED] Deactivate Account

    How can I deactivate/close an account with zmprov, I can't seem to find the syntax anywhere. I want to close it, and then delete it after a time period, rather then just deleting them immediately.

    Another question, does Zimbra have any way to handle these things automatically? Is there someway I can set it up to move inactive accounts to closed, then to deleted after another time period? Or do I just need to script this externally.

    You'd need to script any change from inactive to closed to deleted if you want to do that in any automatic fashion, after making an account closed you could run a cron job that deleted closed account but you'd obviously need to be sure it's really due to be deleted.

    You'll want the following for closing the account:

    modifyAccount(ma) {name@domain|id} [attr1 value1 [attr2 value2...]
    zmprov ma name@domain zimbraAccountStatus closed

    Exactly what I was looking for, I am now trying to script it, it doesn't appear I can get the closed date from zmaccts, any way to get that info? Is there any timestamp info when admin actions are done on an account?
