Our JIRA instance has many customers that view and audit issues and to prevent our collection of imaginative users from causing issues by using questionable avatars I need to disable Avatars or at least prevent users from uploading custom images for their avatars. Is this possible in version 5.1.x?
maybe this thread might help you: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/7199/avatar-image-pre-set
There is an idea to point all avatars to the same image, so avatars are not disabled, but everyone has the same one.
Thanks for the info. While this is pretty brute force and probably not recommend you can prevent uploading custom avatars by disabling write access to $JIRA_HOME/data/avatars. It returns an internal server error when you try.
You can take a look at the jira-application.properties file for the property jira.user.avatar.enabled. There should be documentation on what each property does. You can set this to false. Please give this a try.
As per the upgrade notes https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/JIRA+4.4+Upgrade+Notes they now go in the jira-config.properties and the database. I couldn't find this value in the specified jpm.xml for defaults though. It might not be possible anymore.
