Cleanup in tblSynchedUser and tblSynchedUserRole?


I have built a solution where login is done via OpenIdConnect.
It works well and users are synced to the table tblSynchedUser and roles are synced to the table tblSynchedUserRole in the database.
My question is if any cleanup happens in these tables if a user or a role disappears?

I realize that the database cannot keep track of this as the synchronization takes place when someone logs in and that it does not know if a user or
a role disappears, but I'm thinking if a cleanup happens if e.g. a user has not logged in for the last x months or similar.

Best regards

Hi, there is a function you can call to remove inactive users; EPiServer.Security.Internal.ISynchronizedUsersRepository.DeleteInactiveUsersAsync(timespan);. We do not clean up these tables automatically, since we do not know when a user or role has been removed. You could call this method from a scheduled job.

I noticed that DeleteInactiveUsersAsync is in CMS 12. I guess I'll have to wait until we upgrade from version 11 before I can use it.

Best regards

Yes, the problem is that in CMS11 we're not storing the last login date.
