Bring profile photos from AD when AD/LDAP synchronization configured
A lot of AD forests have Profile Photos in them. Mattermost provides no administrative capability to set profile photos. Therefore, just yank them out of AD? Would prevent complex UI from being necessary and give us AD admins a more fancy way :)
Thank you for nominating the feature! It is now available in Mattermost v5.24.0 in Enterprise Edition E10 and E20.

We use the thumbnailPhoto attribute that sychronizes across Exchange and Outlook. This would also prevent the issue of end users uploading unprofessional avatars. Right now we are having to do this with a kludgy AD export and REST API import into MM, but there's no good way to detect when a user has updated their photo outside of our sync process.

Would be great to have this feature in order to avoid to chase the people to upload their profile pic and to avoid non-proper/desired profile pics, since, the profile pic would be synced on every LDAP synchronization.
It would be nice if Mattermost has the possibility to Sync the profile Pictures from LDAP with the JpegPhoto or another custom attribute.
