Hi there,

Unfortunately, the feature to restrict the profile editing is not implemented on JIRA yet.
For this reason, we open a feature request, for this to be implemented.
You can access it here:

Considering the fact that there is no estimated time or decision for this feature to be implemented, adding yourself will ensure you're proactively informed of progress and updates going forward in accordance to our Implementation of New Features Policy.]

We are sorry for the impact this lack of feature causes in your work.

I have achieved this be adding the following CSS to the Announcement Banner:

<style type="text/css">
#details-user-avatar-trigger {
pointer-events: none;

Note that with any changes to the picture upload id (html) by Atlassian you might need to update this as well in the future.


This is a lifesaver! I tested the code you posted in my test instance (7.13) and it worked! 

thanks a lot!
