JIRA activity stream displays user without profile picture

Florian Kersten Jul 21, 2013

Hi there,

in our JIRA activity stream sometimes some users appear without profile pic. As you can see on the screenshot also the full name changes to username (though in this case its even not the actual username, probably it is an old username which was changed). Both entries are from the same user account.

Does someone know this problem?

The problem was solved after updating JIRA to the newest release

Hi Florian,

This is caused by the 'View User Profiles' permission of 'Anonymous Access' is disabled:
