Suggested Practice for Managing Fields Coming over from SSO

When bringing data over via single sign on, a common request is to ensure that updates flow back to the source system. Our suggested best practice for this is to mark these fields as read only.

If the fields are read-only you can use a separator field with a link back to the parent system, to have the user update their profile.
