notesAdministrationProcess.DeleteUser doesn't delete Vault ID

"notesAdministrationProcess.DeleteUser" won't touch the vault. Domino does not have any API that can be used to delete an ID from the vault, or to mark an ID in the vault inactive. An admin must manually delete/mark inactive an ID entry in the vault. In the Admin client (Domino Administrator), if an administrator manually deletes a user, there's also an option in the UI about what to do about the vault entry. If the person is to be programmatically deleted, the programmer must take action to delete the entry in the vault.

Please allow notesAdministrationProcess.DeleteUser to have the same option for about what to do about the vault entry as the Admin client.

    Seriously, the answer to that question really depends on your backup strategy and doesn't address the fact that there are two different ways to delete a user, manually and programatically. which provide different functionality.

    Deletion of a user has multiple flow-on effects that wouldn't just be resolved by keeping an ID. There are many things that would need to be reversed if a user was to be truly restored. These include reverting ACL entries, readding them to groups, putting them back into the Domino Directory, replacing private design elements, etc
