Bulk account deletion option



WHMCS does not naively offer a bulk delete option.
I have quite a number of "bad" (now closed) accounts created (registered) by bots or hackers. I closed all these nuisance accounts but do not see a way to PURGE or bulk DELETE them en mass.
I'd like to be able to be able check off tick marks next to these accounts in the "View/Search Clients" screen and choose to bulk purge them from my WHMCS. At present they need to be deleted one at a time.

    Bulk delete inactive clients
    Sometimes it becomes necessary to delete a lot of inactive clients from the database, they should include this functionality

Did you heard about backups?

This is a STANDARD solution in many webapps, but not here.
We should be responsible for our data security.
This future is common everywhere.
Hi there,
Thanks for your suggestion.

Inactive can automatically be deleted after a period of holding no services or logins through the Data Retention Policy Automation, so this may meet your requirements instead: https://docs.whmcs.com/Data_Retention_Policy_Automation
This is common sense to expect such a feature to be present.
