I need to delete users from user profile in the view Profile Missing from Import. I tried to run the My Site Cleanup Timer job but they are still there.

How can I do?

  • did you run the full profile Sync? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 10 '14 at 14:45
  • I wish to delete them without a Full-Sync. – Nk SP Nov 10 '14 at 14:46
  • are these accoutns are active in AD or what are their status? and do you know why it fall under missing? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 10 '14 at 14:49
  • They were active in AD, now are disabled and so "not active" in SharePoint. I would like to delete them (throw interface or powershell) before the full-Synch (that runs not that often) – Nk SP Nov 10 '14 at 14:51
  • #Get the USer Profile Service Information #URL for Central Admin (where the User Profile service lives) $caUrl="central-admin:5000"; $site= new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($caUrl); $servercontext=[Microsoft.Office.Server.ServerContext]::GetContext($site); $userprofilemanager=new-object microsoft.office.server.userprofiles.userprofilemanager($servercontext); $p = $userprofilemanager.getUserProfile("domain\username"); $userprofilemanager.RemoveProfile($p) – Waqas Sarwar MVP Nov 10 '14 at 14:52

you can delete it either manually by running the below script

#Get the USer Profile Service Information
 #URL for Central Admin (where the User Profile service lives)
 $caUrl="http://central-admin:5000";
 $site= new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($caUrl);
 $servercontext=[Microsoft.Office.Server.ServerContext]::GetContext($site);
 $userprofilemanager=new-object microsoft.office.server.userprofiles.userprofilemanager($servercontext);
$p = $userprofilemanager.getUserProfile("domain\username");

$userprofilemanager.RemoveProfile($p)

OR Use the Powershell command to purge them all.

To view list of all obsolete users, run the below powershell ( give the identity of user profile)

$upa = Get-spserviceapplication <identity>
Set-SPProfileServiceApplication $upa -GetNonImportedObjects $true

To purge them run the below script.

Set-SPProfileServiceApplication $upa -PurgeNonImportedObjects $true

In some instances, where the user appears in the "Non Imported User Profiles" screen in the CA but fail to appear in PowerShell using the -GetNonImportedObjects switch, I found the following answer - courtesy of Bugra Postaci's blog (https://blog.bugrapostaci.com/2016/03/30/delete-inactive-users-in-user-profiles)

This generates a SQL query on the User Profile Database (in which the users missing from import can be identified), and generates a command to remove them from the user profile service in SharePoint.

Solution in PowerShell:

#PowerShell Script – Delete Inactive User Profiles – SharePoint 2010/2013

if ((Get-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null) {
    Add-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell"
}

$site = Get-SPSite "<site url>"
$ctx = Get-SPServiceContext $site
$pm = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager($ctx)

$ProfileDB = Get-SPDatabase | ? { $_.Type -eq "Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ProfileDatabase"} 

$SqlConnection = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
$SqlConnection.ConnectionString = $ProfileDB.DatabaseConnectionString
$SqlCmd = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
$SqlCmd.CommandText = "select NTName,RecordId from UserProfile_Full where bDeleted=1"
$SqlCmd.Connection = $SqlConnection
$SqlAdapter = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter
$SqlAdapter.SelectCommand = $SqlCmd
$DataSet = New-Object System.Data.DataSet
$SqlAdapter.Fill($DataSet)
$SqlConnection.Close()

Write-host "Total Count: " $DataSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count
Write-Host "Following Inactive Accounts will be deleted !"

foreach($user in $DataSet.Tables[0].Rows)
{
   write-host "Planning to delete :" $user["NTName"] -ForegroundColor Green
   $profile = $pm.GetProfile($user["RecordId"])
    #To enable delete operation remove comment out for below line
    #$pm.RemoveProfile($profile)
    #write-host $user["NTName"] is deleted!!! -ForegroundColor Red
}
write-host "Operation Completed !" 

Hope this helps.
