How t change avatar...

Can the admin change each user's avatar pic? If yes, how?

This is for both Jira and Confluence

In Jira you can simply click on the placeholder image in the user profile (not in the administration screen), I think for confluence it should work the same.

Use the JIRA SU & Confluence SU plugins to impersonate each user whose avatar you wish to change. For large instances, this may take some time :)

You could also use the Confluence gravatar server so that it can be reused

and as of 5.1 jira supports Gravatar

Another option is to do a SQL update on the databases. you can see the avatar setting with this query (in Jira)

select ID, filename, contenttype, avatartype, owner, systemavatar from jiradb

and your avatars are stored in the JIRA_HOME directory


I'm sure Confluence is pretty similar. You could do a bulk upload of images to the server and script SQL queries to do updates based on am input CSV data file. eg.

abc, abcImg
def, defImg
ghi, ghiImg
