Avatar issue

I just did a fresh install of 3.6.2 and can’t seem to figure out how to make the Avatars work with Spark. In the previous version, there was a pluggin for vcards but that pluggin is not listed in the available pluggin section. If it is integrated, I can’t find that setting in the admin console. I am also running in Active Directory authentication. Could someone point me in the right direction?



The plugin is no longer supported as the feature is now built in. You need to activate the system property ldap.override.avatarby setting it to true. If it is not present you need to add it.

That was it. Thank you so much for the quick answer!!


Is the property supposed to be ldap.override.avatarby or just ldap.override.avatar? I saw the latter already in my configuration but the former I had to add. Your message above has the “by” in there.

It should have read:

You need to activate the system property ldap.override.avatar by setting it to true.
