I want to delete my existing organization and create new one with different configurations. Can we recreate organization with same name?



CA Strong Authentication(AuthMinder or WebFort) - 6.2.x or 7.x or 8.x



When an organization is deleted, the associated administrators can no longer log in to it by using the Administration Console and the end users who belong to this organization cannot authenticate themselves. However, the information that is related to the organization is still maintained in the system. The administrator who has scope on the deleted organization can read the organization details.

As the deleted organization information already existed in database, it is not possible to create a new organization with same name. The system will display error "The specified Organization, [Org Name], already exists and is deleted".
