Error: This user is linked to business process status history - when attempting to delete a user

When attempting to delete an application user, you may receive this error: "This user is linked to business process status history.  The link must be removed before the user can be deleted."
Users whose accounts are tied to certain database artifacts cannot be deleted, such as these business processes:
  • batch updates
  • research list population and screens
  • global changes for items such as geocoding or batch import\export
Instead, disable the former user account.
