Change users avatar as admin


Im trying to change a users avatar in Jira cloud.

When I hover over my own profile image, I can change it.


However, I cannot find any way to change another users avatar. I even tried "Log in as users".


Can somebody explain to me how I do this?

Yes, that's right. You can't change other user's avatar, because avatar is managed individually. Avatar can be changed via In order to change the avatar, you would actually need to login as the user, manually. The "Log in as users" feature is just impersonating the user. So it wouldn't allow you to change the other user's avatar. Only the account owner can change his/her avatar

This really sucks.  Rather bad program design decision.  I'd have to go around ask everyone to please keep an eye on your avatar and change it to...and then they can change it to whatever they want to , even something offensive.


Stupid, stupid, stupid.
