Calling command line:

./manage -action deleteUserAccount -user luser -password secret

results in

Can't locate object method "remove" via package "TWiki::User" 
(perhaps you forgot to load "TWiki::User"?) at lib/TWiki/UI/Manage.pm line 119.

That is in _removeUser() and calls


I can't find any method in UI/User.pm that looks like it does the job this expects. What happened to it?



In short, Sven ran out of time when implementing it. frown

If I could then point out something that needs to be addressed when Sven gets to it... I get a notwikiuser exception on a valid user because I have PasswordManager set to none (require user directives in .htaccess force intranet login and the users have been BulkRegistered) and therefore no .htpasswd file. The code in question is

    # check if user entry exists
    if( $user && !$user->passwordExists()) {
        throw TWiki::OopsException( 'attention',
                                    web => $webName,
                                    topic => $topic,
                                    def => 'notwikiuser',
                                    params => $user->stringify() );

in UI/Manage.pm. Probably need to use a different method from passwordExists.

I am not sure I agree with the rating of this as an enhancement given that an advertised capability fails with a code exception.
