Dropping and recreating a user in Workflow Manager

In Workflow Manager, I have a user that is having continual problems with opening a mxd via WMX and having the layers within the mxd flip to his database user name.  After much troubleshooting, I would like to delete and recreate this user both in the Workflow Managers users list and from ArcSDE.

This user still has many open jobs with steps assigned him, as well as closed jobs that contain steps with the username.

The user would be recreated with the same username in both ArcSDE and Workflow Manager.

Are there are recommended steps for removing (and recreating) a user from Workflow Manager and also ArcSDE?  Are there any risks associated with user ids stored on internal tables within Workflow Manager?

My recommendation is to create a placeholder "user" and assign all the jobs that the user you would be deleting is assigned to.

Once you have deleted and recreated the user, I will then go back and reassign the jobs to this new user.

This should help avoid any issues with the user within Workflow Manager.
