Preventing users from changing their Profile Pictures


Jason Wilson (31618) | asked Feb 27 '15, 6:11 a.m.
Morning All,

I am wondering if anyone can assist please.

I am trying to find a way that prevents users from changing their profile picture on the 'Users - Overview' page.

We are pulling user information via AD so, this already makes the other fields such as email address and ID read only.

Ideally if possible we would like to pull a users corporate picture (held in AD) on to the profile and make that read only, however if this is not possible then we would like to be able to have that read only to all except for the administrator.

I am not aware of a setting that prevents the user from modifying his profile.
If you want to do automation - I don't think there is anything in RTC to pull the picture from LDAP, but here is the API you'd need: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/01/08/maintaing-user-photos-with-the-plain-java-client-libraries/

Thanks Ralph, I guessed this might have been the case.
