    The Microsoft Graph API allows you to update profile photos for various entities such as users, groups, teams, and contacts. However, it does not directly support batch operations for updating profile photos. You would need to make individual requests for each entity whose photo you want to update.

    Update a user's profile photo:

    PUT https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/photo/$value
    Content-type: image/jpeg
    Binary data for the image

    In the above request, replace me with the id or userPrincipalName of the user whose photo you want to update. The binary data for the image should be included in the body of the request.

    For more details, you can refer to: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/profilephoto-update?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http#example-1-update-the-photo-of-a-user

    Hi @HR

    As Prasad said, Teams currently cannot batch upload profile photos for users.

    To get this feature more quickly, you can send a feedback directly to Microsoft Feedback to add it in future updates.

    Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. With requirements like this increase, the problem may well be released in the future.

    Thanks for your understanding and support.
