Unable to remove user

#tctl users rm himaz

error: special characters are not allowed in resource names, please use name composed only from characters, hyphens and dots

Can you please provide the output of tctl users ls and tctl get user/himaz?

This is a weird issue. Could you also provide the output of tctl tokens ls as well? You can redact the content of the tokens, but I need to see the names.

This is a pretty weird situation. The error message you’re getting (error: special characters are not allowed in resource names, please use name composed only from characters, hyphens and dots) generally indicates that something is populating an unsupported token into the database somewhere.

Are you specifying the static tokens via the teleport.yaml config file under the auth_service.tokens section? If so, can you comment these tokens out, restart Teleport and try removing the user again?
