How to deactivate end user from updating the General information in User profile.



This is not included out of the box product feature but there is a option to do some customization in the .XSL files. Make the below changes and the any user will be restricted from updating the User profile.


1. Login to the Catalog Server

2. Update the file "editprofile.xsl" located in <USM_Home>\view\webapps\usm\explorer

Note: If you already have this file customized then you should find the same in your file store for customizations

3. Locate the line for the selective field, for example: first_name, and add a new tag at the end of the code i.e. disabled="true"

This syntax should look like this after the change:

<input tabindex="1" maxlength="100" type="text" id="first_name" size="30" value="{COLLECTION/icuser/first_name/LITERAL}" disabled="true"/>


Additional Information: 

The customization provided here is irrespective of what role the end user it provided, it just restricts the end user from updating the user profile.
