When a user leaves, those content (e.g. Models) the user created needs to be transferred to other user in SAC.

If a user is no longer needed in SAC, the user can be deleted with the option of transferring the content to another user.

Please refer to SAC help document about user deletion:

Deleting Users

  • Transfer all content to another user: private, public, and shared content will be transferred to a new owner.
  • Delete private files and only transfer public and shared content: public and shared content will be transferred to a new owner. All private content that is not shared will be deleted.


By default, only users assigned to the Admin or BI Admin roles can allow the transfer of content when a user is deleted. To create a new role or modify an existing role that includes this feature, you must add the Ownership of Content permission to the role. For more information, see Creating Custom Roles.

Any model permissions, or connections that content depends on, are not modified when a new owner is assigned.
