SharePoint 2013 + February 2016 CU
We have an issue when uploading pictures to User Profiles in Central Admin. The steps to recreate the problem are:
- Choose a profile to edit (not your own) from the User Profile Service. We'll call this user
- Change/upload a new user photo to the
domain_otheruserprofile and save
- Go back to the profile and note the URL of the profile photo. It should contain your username, not
- Find your own profile and note that the picture has changed to the one you uploaded for
This causes a secondary effect when you try to "fix" your own profile photo, as the user profile data was updated for
domain_otheruser to point to your own user profile name (they have the same value). So by changing your own photo, the photo for
domain_otheruser is also changed.
I noticed another user posted about this issue: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/70d8411f-5eaf-4850-873c-5c356c65ad67/user-profile-pictures-changing-after-updating-another-profile?forum=sharepointgeneral
I cannot find where Microsoft has publically stated the issue is still happening, they seem to think it only occurring within the October 2015 CU.
