I don't understand this question. What names of what resources of which application? What are you trying to achieve here?

Thanks Ralph for your quick response.
Suppose I have a PA and into that couple of users(added to PA) are there.
Now I want to remove them from the PA as well as from Jazz Repository.

If there would be any impact on existing Iterations,plans,task etc ...???

You can remove users from a project are. This does not impact anything, because the users are managed on the repository level.

On Repository Level, you should archive the users. They would no longer be able to log in but all references would still work. You can not delete the user, except using the API or some other trick. I would not do that if not necessary and I don't see why you would need to . Archiving gets them out of the way.

If you delete the user, the link to the user would be broken. The Tools should still work, as far as I know.
