changing user image without being connected to azure ad connect RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys. Is it possible to change user images without being connected to azure ad connect? Well, I'll explain. I have an infra that my users are for the local ad, but I have an app in the cloud like teams etc ... that need to change the avatar photo. it is possible to perform this operation.

  • Hi Lucas, not sure I fully understand your question/scenario but if you are looking for a programmatic way to change/edit user photo in Azure AD then checkout Set-AzureADUserThumbnailPhoto cmdlet which is part of the Azure AD PowerShell module.

    You can also update users' avatar/photo under the user profile section in Azure Portal using these steps

    Are you trying to change the images on behalf of the user or are you trying to delegate access to the users to change their own images? Kindly clarify so we can provide best possible guidance.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers.
