Business value

Remove inactive users with disabled status in the system to comply with GDPR and to free up storage space. This also allows for historical records to be purged.

Feature details

When users have been disabled or deleted from Azure Active Directory or the Microsoft 365 admin center, they're set to disabled status in Microsoft Dataverse. Disabled users residing in the system not only take up storage space but prevent historical records from being purged.

This feature provides the capability to delete and remove users who have a disabled status while maintaining data integrity. It also allows compliance officers to enforce GDPR delete user requirements.
