OpenAthens 101: A guide for our librarians – Housekeeping
More specifically, how you can have expired accounts automatically deleted, preventing space being filled and any issues with data protection.
This housekeeping option can be found in the admin site under Preferences > Organization. You’ll want to pick a length of time that covers the common uses in your field – e.g. a college might want it set long enough that returning students aren’t deleted over the summer, whilst a corporation might prefer it to be within a week.
Since it is an organization preference rather than a domain preference, you can have different settings for sub-organizations.
There is a similar setting for local accounts on the page where you set up the connection (Management > Connections)
