You can use the RemoveClusterAdmin method to remove a cluster admin, an LDAP cluster admin, or a third-party Identity Provider (IdP) cluster admin. You cannot remove the "admin" Cluster Admin account.


When an IdP cluster admin is removed that has authenticated sessions associated with a third-party Identity Provider IdP, those sessions will either logout or possibly experience a loss of access rights within their current session. The access rights loss will depend on whether the removed IdP cluster admin matched one of multiple IdP cluster admins from a given user's SAML attributes. The remaining set of matching IdP cluster admins results in a reduced set of aggregate access rights. Other cluster admin user types are logged out when their cluster admins are removed.

This method has the following input parameter:
