We're showing 1 page of users in our site after hard-deleting via the API -- that is, using the 'X' after deleting a user with the trash can icon.

The 1 page shows 13 users but we have 240 in dbo.Users.  It is possible this is orphaned content -- we've done a few restore, retest, etc. iterations.

Since the API only shows 13 Users, and I already know deletion of Users via SSMS triggers a Cascading Delete, I should just be able to zap 227 users by a simple

DELETE

 FROM dbo.Users

 WHERE UserId NOT IN (the 13 Ids we need)

Is there anyplace else I need to check for orphaned data?  perhaps in any files/folders set up for these users, etc.?

since there may be a script for this, please let me know if there is one.  As I have a full restore point for this database, I'll proceed with removing users with the above script since I can restore everything.  I'll check forum replies and if anything else is needed I'll just go back to our baseline and include it.

Thanks!

I will resolve my own ticket.

There are many tables in the DNN database that depend on the users table -- checked with a friend of mine on this.  227 extra users is nothing and its best to leave them in place.  They won't show on the User Accounts and any future created users will function as expected so there's no purpose in "baselining" the table, if that's a right word.

tables of DNN Core Framework should not be affected but 3rd party modules might place FKs although they shouldn't.
