Unable To Delete User With Error communicating with Bamboo: Unauthorized

Still need help?

The Atlassian Community is here for you.

As an administrator, you're unable to delete users as you are presented with an error dialog that says Bamboo: Unauthorized.  Removing users from all groups does not alleviate this issue.


This is due to the user having been a Bamboo user and the administrator not also having admin permissions in Bamboo. 


The workaround for this is to add yourself to the administrators-bamboo group or equivalent.  If you navigate to the Bamboo admin page at <URL>/builds/admin/viewGlobalPermissions.action, you will see what group as the Restricted Admin functionality - you just need to be a part of that group.
