Removing a user

At some point in the lifetime of your GitLab instance, you need to remove a user. GitLab offers two ways of doing this: one is completely removing a user from the system and the other one is just blocking the user so that they can't log in anymore.

Getting ready

To complete this recipe, you need to have at least two users: a user who has administrator privileges and a user for whom we can block access.

How to do it…

In the following steps, we will block a user from your GitLab server:
