Automatically delete users based on attributes

In organizations where changes to the user base occur frequently, it is often more efficient to automatically delete users based on one or more user attributes. For instructions on how to delete users directly from the Users list, see Delete users.
Automatically deleting sponsors also deletes their associated dependent users.
