Hello Tony,

Currently you cannot remove user account, however you can change its
username.
We plan to allow removal of user accounts in the near future.

There doesn't appear to be an option in the UI to remove existing user
accounts.

Hello Jerome,

With Windows NT authentication TeamCity does not manage username and
password of the user. You should change them in your domain controller.
Please note that when you log in to the TeamCity using new user name it will
create a new user account (old account will stay too). This is a known
problem and we plan to add "Delete user account" functionality for NT domain
authorization too.

This is still a problem

Here's the description from the Jira issue I've been attempting to add, most recently in Idea Feedback
-


TeamCity 2.0

Today, TeamCity did no allow me to login using the user name that I have used for the 2.0 EAP, beta and current production builds. This is the same name that I have been using for several application upgrades, Tomcat restarts and workstation restarts.

Instead, it seems to have picked up the user name and configuration last attempted with TC 1.2. This is odd, as I thought that I had removed all .BuildServer information before starting with the 2.0 EAP's.

So to get things working again I need to either
a) delete the obsolete user, and let the current license get attached to the current user
or
b) Delete every trace of Team City, re-install and recreate my build configurations
or
c)get a temporary license that should last long enough so that obsolete users can be deleted in some later TC release.

And replying to myself.

It looks like TC 2.0 has a 'Delete User Account' button the problem is that I can only use it to delete the user account I want to keep - not the account I want to delete.

Hello, Dave!

Seems that the TeamCity server service is run under "System" account and TeamCity data path is set to ".BuildServer". That is, it is relative to service's working folder which appears to be below Windows/System32.

I guess the simplest way is to reinstall TeamCity and specify the full path for the ".BuildServer" folder where you want it to be. If there is no previous data in the folder your will need to start from scratch by entering your license, creating new users and projects.

If you want to preserve previous projects' configuration make sure .BuildServer/config folder is the one left from previous version of TeamCity.

Hope this helps.

Well, the configuration is almost fine the way things are. I just need to delete the user currently assigned to the license.

Perhaps a temporary license could be added to the mix, that would allow the real user to login and delete the bogus user.

Dave,

If you have only one license, you may do the following:

Delete ".BuildServer\system\license.keys" file (please make a backup copy beforehand) and restart TeamCity server: this way you will need to enter the license again and it will be assigned to the first logged in user with administration rights.
