Some or all of the below information will be requested if it isn’t supplied; for fastest response please provide as much as you can :heart:

Nextcloud version (eg, 18.0.2):
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04):
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25):
PHP version (eg, 7.1):

The issue you are facing: when the admin user (or anyone who has the permission: Group admin for ) changes the user to disabled, the user is disabled, but I cannot find a record of that action. Since more people could have the permission to administer users, it makes sense to at least have an audit record of that action. The logging shows the failed logon attempt but that is all you can find, it seems.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y):

Steps to replicate it:

  1. logon as admin
  2. disable a user

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:

Login failed: <username> disabled (Remote IP: <IP>)

The output of your config.php file in /path/to/nextcloud (make sure you remove any identifiable information!):
