Hi,

I created an alert for monitoring orphaned enabled searches . It is getting saved searches for private searches of user who are deleted.
Now i don't know how to get them deleted.

My question is that, should i be even worried about them. Since they are private searched and user is deleted it wouldn't be running. Also, is it is not running why is it showing enabled.
If i should be worried how i can delete it. Since it is not showing in the place where all saved search are shown.?

Hi,

I'll suggest to create local user with same userid who were deleted and then remove private searches associated with those users & then remove those locally created user OR re-assign those private searches to other users and then remove it.

To remove it from your environment or not, I'll suggest to tidy up your environment. In longer run it will help a lot.
