An active user is anyone who triggers a non-OSS build to run on CircleCI. The following count as an individual user:
- Commits from registered and unregistered users that trigger builds, including PR merges.
- Re-running jobs in the CircleCI web application, including SSH debug.
- Approving manual jobs (approver will be considered the actor of all downstream jobs).
- Using Scheduled Workflows (including Dependabot)
- Machine users
Note: If your project is open-source you will not be considered an active user.

How can I Remove Users?
You cannot remove Active Users from occupied seats in the current billing cycle, but they will drop off of the next month’s billing cycle if they are not active. There is no way to manually remove users from seats at this time.
