    Caution – Caution –

    Deleting users(s) from keyfile/digestfile authentication databases will delete the associated group(s) as well if the group(s) contain no members after deletion of the user(s). This happens because groups without members are not allowed for keyfile/digestfile authentication databases.

    Note –

    Using CLI

    For deleting a user through CLI, execute the following command.

    wadm> delete-user --user=admin --password-file=admin.pwd --host=serverhost 
    --port=8989 --config config1 --authdb KEYFILE1 user1
