Sametime Meetings - turn off Avatars for guest users

If Sametime Community/Proxy is configured to retrieve profile photos from HCL Connections then Sametime Meeting guest users wil get many authorization prompts in browser because they have not a CNX account and will never retrieve photos.

This can be avoided by introducing a switch to disable avatars for guest users in Sametime Meeting.

    In Sametime 12 HF1, for kubernetes, there is a setting in the values.yaml to disable this feature. Simply change the setting:

    guestsCanFetchAvatars: true


    guestsCanFetchAvatars: false

    Then save/close the values.yaml and run a helm upgrade. I am not sure off-hand what the setting is for Docker, open a case with Technical Support or perhaps you can post the question in the Sametime community forum.
