Is it possible to use the AD profile image in an external application? I was using "ObjectImage.ashx?path={AD Path}" till the previous version to get the profile images in my web application. But since the upgrade to 2018.2 this doesn't seem to be an option.

You can use the following to get a user photo in base 64 format:



  • host – specifies the name of the computer where Adaxes Web Interface is installed (e.g. adaxes.company.com);
  • WebUI – specifies the name of the Web Interface (e.g. Admin);
  • ObjectDN|ObjectGuid|ObjectSid – specifies the identifier of the object for which to retrieve the photo. You can use the object distinguished name (DN), GUID or SID as identifier.

Important: the approach will work only if you have Auto-Logon enabled for the Web Interface.


Excellent! Thank you!
