Displaying Active Directory Profile Pictures in VCS

If your Active Directory server includes user photographs in the thumbnailPhoto source field, you can ensure that these photographs are displayed in the Vocera Collaboration Suite.

  1. Create a contact source for the Active Directory server. See Importing Contacts From a Source for details on how to do this.
  2. In this contact source, map the Personal Photo contact field to thumbnailPhoto, and set the Key and User Key checkboxes in the row that contains the Email contact field.
  3. Create a Contacts Distribution List for the Active Directory users for which photos are to be displayed. See Creating a Contacts Distribution List for more details.
