How can a Conflunce Admin change a users avatar?

From reading thru the multiple requests for Confluence to add this feature, I'm assuming it is not part of the standard feature set, and I'll have to hack into something on the back end.

 

My specific case is, I have a user that no longer works here, they have set there avatar to something inappropriate, and we do want to retain the comments and docs this user has created over the years.

Hi Randall,

As mentioned above by Eduard, it is not possible to do it with an out of the box Confluence installation. However we do have an improvement request in our tracking system here:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-14368

Please vote on it and address your concern directly into it. Hope it clarifies.

Cheers,
Septa Cahyadiputra

Install SU plugin for Confluence, switch to that user, change the avatar.

On another note - if the user no longer works at your place, what's wrong with changing the password and going under their name? Or is the user disabled? If so, SU won't help you - you will need to activate the user while you are changing their avatar.

I have an open source utility that I created that uses Confluence's API's to upload the profile photo to a user. Below is the address.

+1 .. I've used this for the past year or so with great success. (Thanks Davin!)

I just released v1.1.0.0 of the profile photo uploader. It does better face detection and cropping, has a version checker, and a test harness to see how the system will crop and resize your photos.
