You can import and synchronize user profile pictures in the new xFlow Analyst Interface through CA SDM LDAP integration. The profile pictures can be loaded in bulk from an LDAP server (Active Directory) using existing CA SDM utilities such as
pdm_ldap_sync
and
pdm_ldap_import
.
CA SDM must be integrated with an Active Directory server to display user profile pictures in the xFlow Analyst Interface.
If CA SDM is already integrated with an LDAP Server, system administrators can use the
pdm_ldap_sync
utility to update existing CA SDM user records from the LDAP server.  Any subsequent new users added to the LDAP server can be copied over to CA SDM using the
pdm_ldap_import
 command utility to display the profile picture. If a CA SDM user does not have a profile picture, the xFlow Analyst Interface displays a colored circle with user initials appended to it. For more information, see Importing and synchronizing CA SDM records from the LDAP Server
How to Disable User Profile Picture Synchronization from the LDAP Server
To disable a user’s profile pictures from the LDAP server, the CA SDM ldap object must be modified as follows:
  1. Navigate to $NX_ROOT/site/mods/majic directory.
  2. Create a new
    .mod
    file or edit an existing one.
  3. Add the following code in a separate line:
    MODIFY ldap profile_pic dummy ;
  4. Save the mod file and restart the CA SDM Server.
