Reproducing the Issue

  • Photos are visible when searching for users in people search.
  • Photos in search do not respect the RBP permission Employee Data > Photo > View/Edit


As part of the 1911 enhancement, administrators can now restrict a user's ability to view another user's photo in search via RBP permissions. This will align with certain companies' security policies.

To do so:

  1. Navigate to Admin Center > Manage Permission Role
  2. Select role > click "Permission..."
  3. Under User Permissions, select Employee Data > Photo
  4. Enable the View and Edit switches for users to see the photos in search and PP3; and vice versa

If a user has NO permission to see the photo (via Employee Data > Photo > View/Edit), they will only see the default photo.
