As Admin, how do I upload a photo for my User?

I don't see any Log In As User like in JIRA or Confluence.

Do I have to use an API like in HipChat?


Thanks and regards,

Hi Erik,

Thanks for responding, but I am trying to do the uploads for my Users.   smile


Thanks and regards,



You cannot change someone else's avatar (or any profile setting for that matter). Bitbucket accounts are personal identities and not owned/controlled by others.

Thank you Erik.

It is possible with JIRA and Confluence as Admin to Login as the User and make a change.

On HipChat there is an API to update the User's photo.

Looks like Bitbucket is not doing any of these.    sad




Bitbucket's use case goes beyond that of teams with many individual developers using it for their own work, in addition to that of their employer.

It would be inappropriate for users to lose ownership of their accounts and potentially their own private repos just by joining a team. Others like myself are members of multiple teams.

This is different from JIRA of which there is no one global instance.

Hi Terrance,

Our ScriptRunner suite of add-ons (for Bitbucket Server and JIRA) allow you to Switch User to another user within Bitbucket and JIRA:

We don't have a ScriptRunner for Confluence yet (a few months away roughly).
