Disable user account temporary


I would like to disable some local accounts temporary. I cannot find disable or suspend button in access controls settings menu. Is there a way to disable the account?

I tried remove all rows from a target user but I cannot. It seems to need at least one role.

There is no way to disable accounts unfortunatly.

Some suggestions:

  • Take away all their roles including user.
  • Change the passwords on the accounts (you will need to give them new passwords when you are done)
  • You could edit web.conf and use the acceptFrom parameter to limit logins only to specific IPs or a subnet

Hope this is helpful
