|Using a Jive Community / Reference and Advanced Topics|
Sometimes profile fields can't be edited because an administrator has locked them down, or because they come from a directory server controlled by your organization.
If you can't edit a field such as your name or title in your profile, it's typically because an administrator has set your community up this way. Often, fields like name, title, email address, and department aren't entered by a Jive admin, but come from a directory server such as Active Directory. In this case, the community administrator can't directly edit them in the profile, either.
