@Chandler_Bing What are you trying to accomplish? I see your point that it doesn't work with windows auth. The only reason I ask is that perhaps changing permissions to no access would accomplish the same as deactivating a user - but I could be wrong.. You should be able to go to permissions and select no access for a user. We use windows auth for our gallery.
@patrick_digan We also use windows authentication and a great use case would be to pull users for a distribution list. Only a small percentage of our company is represented on Alteryx gallery.
When we need to send an important notification (e.g. an outage or ROS) or instructions to users (e.g. disabling CSV Encoding Type with the release of server 2019.4), I query our MongoDB (user-managed) but all users have a status of Active. I then have to run the list against our active directory db to try and filter inactive users.
Gallery Default Permissions settings for users who authenticate through our network are automatically Viewers. They don't necessarily get added under Permissions - I only use the Permissions page to add and elevate a user role (e.g. to Artisan). Setting permissions to No Access doesn't affect the user account (Users page) or their studio (Subscriptions page). Why do they automatically get a studio, one can not know and is a separate topic.
