Delete a user

Deletes a user. The API immediately logs the user out and removes all of its grants.

Note. This operation can only be accessed by account users with unrestricted access.

Parent and child accounts

In a parent and child account environment, the following apply:

  • You can't delete a child account parent user (proxy user). The API returns a 403 error if you target a proxy user with this operation.

  • A parent account using an unrestricted proxy user can use this operation to delete a child account user.
