We are wanting to individually change everyones profile pictures in confluence, so we dont have to deal with the drama of trying to convince 500+ employees to do this themselves.... Problem is that only the user can change their own picture - so even a confluence administrator can't change another users profile picture!
I have submitted a feature request to Atlassian, however does anyone have a way to do this now without getting every user to change thier own photo manually?
The best workaround I can think of is to replace the default profile picture: <confluence-install>/confluence/images/icons/profilepics/default.gif. You might want to make sure you replaced it with the same dimension GIF picture. If you want to overwrite the profile pictures of all the users that already set one, you can do that by a hackery job, update OS_PROPERTYENTRY table in Confluence database. The entity_key is 'confluence.user.profile.picture' and the column that holds the path is string_val. For example, you'd need to run this to overwrite all the profile picture to the default.gif:
thanks for suggestion. I test in a develop environment and it's good :-).
A question for @Husein Alatas [Atlassian].
I can use the same way to set profile picture for all confluence users?? I mean. I have a customer with severe policy about employees photos (there is a ufficial photo for each employee and only this photo can be used). Can I create a Stored procedure to automatically set ufficial photo as profile picture?
To see new photos, tomcat's restart is mandatory??
thanks in advance
Any news on this? I'd also like to replace the profile pictures of my team members by individual pictures. This is no problem in Jira, but still not possible in Confluence i'm afraid. :(
We share accounts between Jira and Confluence using Crowd, but profile photos are not being synched.
