Administrators can delete endpoints using the console, which removes them from the Malwarebytes Nebula platform. After a period of time, the deleted endpoint is also removed from the Malwarebytes database. Malwarebytes then uninstalls the agent from from the endpoint. This article explains what happens when you mark endpoints for deletion, and how to perform this action.
When endpoints are marked for deletion
When you select endpoints for deletion, the following happens:
- The console flags the endpoint for uninstall.
- The console removes the endpoint from the UI. This frees up one of your seat licenses.
- If the endpoint checks in within 90 days:
- The console tells the endpoint to uninstall.
- The endpoint uninstalls Malwarebytes.
- If the endpoint checks in after 90 days:
- The Delete task expires in the console since the endpoint did not check in within the 90 day period.
- Malwarebytes remains installed on the endpoint and the endpoint appears in the console again. You must re-initiate the Delete task in the console.
When deleting an entire group of endpoints, the group remains in the console as an empty group.
- From the sidebar, go to Endpoints.
- Check the boxes next to endpoints you want to delete.
- In the upper-right, click Delete. A warning message displays. If you're sure you want to continue, click DELETE.
