Note

Although the AccountManagement settings are available in advanced provisioning for other editions, you should only use them for HoloLens devices.

DeletionPolicy

Use this setting to set a policy for deleting accounts.

  • Delete immediately: When the account signs out, it will be deleted immediately.
  • Delete at storage capacity threshold: Accounts will be deleted when available disk space falls below the threshold you set for StorageCapacityStartDeletion. When the available disk space reaches the threshold you set for StorageCapacityStopDeletion, the Account Manager will stop deleting accounts.
  • Delete at storage capacity threshold and profile inactivity threshold: This setting will apply the same disk space checks as noted above, and will also delete accounts if they have not signed in within the number of days specified by ProfileInactivityThreshold.

EnableProfileManager

Set as True to enable automatic account management. If this is not set to True, no automatic account management will occur.

ProfileInactivityThreshold

If you set DeletionPolicy as Delete at storage capacity threshold and profile inactivity threshold, use this setting to configure the number of days after which an account that has not signed in will be deleted.

StorageCapacityStartDeletion

Enter the percent of total storage available for user profiles. If DeletionPolicy is set to Delete at storage capacity threshold or Delete at storage capacity threshold and profile inactivity threshold, profiles will be deleted when available storage capacity falls below this threshold, until the value that you set for StorageCapacityStopDeletion is reached. Profiles that have been inactive the longest will be deleted first.

StorageCapacityStopDeletion

Enter the percent of total storage at which to stop deleting profiles. If DeletionPolicy is set to Delete at storage capacity threshold or Delete at storage capacity threshold and profile inactivity threshold, profiles will be deleted when available storage capacity falls below the threshold set for StorageCapacityStartDeletion, until the value that you set for StorageCapacityStopDeletion is reached. Profiles that have been inactive the longest will be deleted first.
