As organizations grow and evolve, managing user access to digital assets becomes increasingly complex. In order to ensure data integrity and maintain security, it's crucial to keep track of which users have admin privileges and regulate access accordingly. To assist with this task, we've developed a powerful script called RemoveAdminUsers, designed to manage admin user access in Content Hub. In this blog post, we'll delve into the technical aspects of the RemoveAdminUsers script, discuss its functionality, and provide a comprehensive guide on how to use it.
Overview of the RemoveAdminUsers Script
The RemoveAdminUsers script is a versatile tool that helps organizations manage admin users in Content Hub more efficiently. The script offers several key features:
- Disables admin users instead of removing them, ensuring a smooth audit process.
- Generates a report for better management of admin users.
- Streamlines the process of disabling admin users.
Here's a step-by-step breakdown of the RemoveAdminUsers script and how it works.
Step 1: Reading Email Addresses from a CSV File
The script starts by reading a list of email addresses from a CSV file, which serves as the input for determining which admin users should be disabled. This can easily be customized according to your organization's needs.
Step 2: Retrieving User Information Asynchronously
Next, the script asynchronously retrieves user information from Content Hub. It queries user profiles and processes them in parallel, which significantly speeds up the task. During this step, the script logs information about each user fetched, allowing you to monitor its progress.
Step 3: Disabling Admin Users
Once the user information has been fetched, the script proceeds to disable the admin users whose email addresses match those in the input CSV file. It's important to note that system admin users (such as certain Sitecore accounts) will not be disabled, ensuring that core system functionalities remain intact.
Step 4: Generating Reports
After disabling the relevant admin users, the script generates a report containing users that could not be disabled because they are system admin users. This list helps you keep track of any special accounts that require manual intervention.
The RemoveAdminUsers script is an invaluable tool for organizations that rely on Content Hub to manage digital assets. By automating the process of disabling admin users and generating insightful reports, the script simplifies user management and enhances overall security. We encourage you to leverage the power of RemoveAdminUsers to streamline your organization's user management processes and maintain a secure Content Hub environment.
