Detailed Description

This handler deletes a user from your Yammer network. After searching and finding the user id that cooresponds to the inputted user email, the user will be deleted. If a user with the specified email does not exist, the request will be ignored. Any errors that happen during this process will be caught and re-raised by the handler.

Note: This handler requires a verified admin account in a paid Yammer network! (If you are an admin and still getting an error with the message "Attempt to access a protected resource failed" make sure that you are also verified.)

How to retrieve your Access Token

* These instructions can also be found on developer.yammer.com/authentication under client-side authentication

1. Start by creating a client application at https://www.yammer.com/client_applications

2. Fill in the required information and create the application

3. Using the client id you retrieved from the application, paste this url into your browser, making sure to replace [:client_id]:

- https://www.yammer.com/dialog/oauth?client_id=[:client_id]&redirect_uri=127.0.0.1&response_type=token

4. After submitting that page and authorizing the application, look in the url to find your access token. That url will look like:

- https://www.yammer.com127.0.0.1/#access_token=[:access_token]

5. Paste this Access Token into your info values and you will be all set!
