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.
So Atlassian support sent me this;
Top right gear > System > General Config > Edit (right side)
Scroll down and you see "Gravitar server" and you can select off. Not sure why this isn't on this page - https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-disable-avatar-features-in-jira-707985425.html
We will test and see if that worked.
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.
