LDAP User Profile Photo

Kanboard can download automatically user pictures from the LDAP server.

This feature is enabled only if LDAP authentication is activated and the parameter LDAP_USER_ATTRIBUTE_PHOTO is defined.


In your config.php, you have to set the LDAP attribute used to store the image.

define('LDAP_USER_ATTRIBUTE_PHOTO', 'jpegPhoto');

Usually, the attributes jpegPhoto or thumbnailPhoto are used. The image can be stored in JPEG or PNG format.

To upload the image in the user profile, Active Directory administrators may use software like AD Photo Edit.


The profile image is downloaded at login time only if the user do not already have uploaded an image previously.

To change the user photo, the previous one have to be removed manually in the user profile.
