I have provisioned User Profile Synchronisation Service Application and configured it to use Active Directory Import. I've done a full synchronisation and i have all my users in User Profiles.

I am now trying to allow user to update their own profile images by adding a mapping to the Picture.

I'm following this guide, but under the "Add New Mapping > Direction" there's no export.

enter image description here

How do you enable?


1) Please verify whether "User Profile Service Application" -> "Configure Synchronization Connections" are configured properly and all the AD User properties are crawled after full crawl.

2) You would see the properties in "User Profile Service Application" -> "Manage User Properties as below" enter image description here

3) Once this works fine you can add new property mapping as below : enter image description here

I think there is some problem in crawling at your end. Kindly create a new synchronization connection and follow the steps, it should work.
