New Feature: User Pictures

Blog Post created by Sean Miller Employee on Feb 11, 2020

User pictures have been introduced in the RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.2 release to help various RSA Identity and Governance actors make decisions when reviewing, approving, or remediating user's access.  An image can now be associated with a user and is displayed on the user detail screen and the user information popups throughout the product.  The image is also shown for the active user in the menu bar when logged in.

 

 

User pictures can be managed a few different ways be default:

  • Self - A user can modify their image on the user's detail screen
  • Direct reports - A supervisor can set the image for any user's they can edit.  Usually this equates to their direct reports but this can be controlled through security context configurations.
  • Administrator - Pictures can be directly uploaded through the Admin->User Interface->Files (Users) page.  The filename must match the userid of a user before it will be used.
  • Web Services - Pictures can also be uploaded using the setUserImage web service.  This web service requires a token for a user that can modify the specified user.  This is a useful way to manage images in bulk leveraging curl calls.  There is also a getUserImage web service that can be used to access the picture for a specific user

 

The security for who can edit the images can be controlled by granting the User:Edit Image, User:Edit Self Image, and User:Edit All Image entitlements to the desired users.
