People Search Core results Web Part is prompting user credentials for each result on the page. For instance if I get 3 results, the credentials prompt is appearing three times. I suspect that these prompts are only for the images of the user as other properties are getting displayed if I cancel the prompt. Is there a workaround for this issue ?


  • Issues occur when images are not published. – Rishi Jagati Nov 29 '16 at 10:34
  • Those images are not a part of site assets. They are profile pictures from user profiles. Do they need publishing as well ? – Yashwanth Rao Nov 29 '16 at 10:47

You need to enable cross domain photo setting.

Try below code:

$wa = Get-SPWebApplication http://sitecollectionurl
$wa.CrossDomainPhotosEnabled = $true

Reference- Enable cross domain photo

  • This works for all subsites too , right ? – Yashwanth Rao Nov 29 '16 at 10:45
