Photo Can Be Uploaded Despite Update Disallowed By Webcenter Admin

(Doc ID 1398683.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 30, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Even though the "photo" is unchecked from the "profile" in Administration-> configuration tab-> services -> people connection -> profile, users can edit or change their photo.

Steps to reproduce the issue.

1. Login as Webcenter Administrator
2. Go to Administration-> configuration tab-> services -> people connection -> profile
3. Uncheck photo, email, display name & department check boxes to prohibit update from users.
4. Go back to "My Profile" tab. You can see that email, display name & department text boxes are grayed out, but you can still edit the photo and can change the photo.
