Can I retrieve a user's profile pic via SOAP?

Hi,

I am trying to create a page with a few users names and profile pictures in it.

I want to be able to create that page automatically.

This is why I need a way to get the porfile pictures using SOAP api

Thanks!

It looks like it is not possible to do get a user's profile picture via SOAP. You can vote on this feature request if it's something you'd like to see implemented: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-13709

Alternatively, you could write a custom plugin that exposes this information through a custom SOAP endpoint.

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for your reply, any idea which end point contains that kind of data?

I looked up the api's documentation and could not find an endpoint that will contain (along with other attributes of course) a link to the profile image.

Cheers,

As I said, there is unfortunately nowhere in the SOAP API where you can retrieve this information. If you want to develop a custom plugin to provide this information, I think there is a method on the UserAccessor bean that will return the user's profile picture info.
