  • Named CAL

Last Used (UTC)

Expiration (UTC)

If a CAL-to-user association has not been in use for the last 7 days, it will be deleted immediately. If a CAL-to-user association is currently being used or has recently been used, it will be marked for deletion, which means that new user access sessions through this CAL are not allowed. However, the CAL-to-user association will still occupy an allocated CAL until this quarantine period has passed.

When the Quarantined Until (UTC) time stamp has passed, a CAL-to-user association can be removed manually. To entirely remove a CAL-to-user association from the list, thus freeing a document CAL, click on the Delete icon,Delete.

Information noteThe CAL-to-user association is formally deleted after the expiration time.
Information noteThe CAL will not be available for 7 days.

Before the Quarantined Until (UTC) time stamp has passed, a CAL-to-user association can be undeleted, by clicking on the Undo Delete icon, Undo.
