Old Locked IDs in SAP of employees who have left the organisation be kept locked or deleted.

Old locked IDs in SAP of employees who have left the organisation be kept locked or deleted. Please advise the best practice.

Any risk of retaining them as locked for long instead of deletion.

Also confirm is there any impact upon deletion on the history in terms of transactional logs .

    Keep them.....

    1. for Audit (when you delete, you probably loose adress Information)

    2. for history (Change docs etc. ->also related to 1.)

    3.to avoid re-usage of the same ID for a different human user

      Thanks Bernhard

      Keep them for how long?

      As a practice, we have been retaining these locked IDs since inception, more than 5 years. Now there are 500+ locked IDs. From License perspective are they considered in SAP audit?
