Reproducing the Issue

1. Log in to External career site (RMK)

2. Then search for a job requisition and try to apply using Linkedin

3. Verify that the linkedin information won't update the existing candidate profile


This is a system limitation that the candidate data is only brought in at the very beginning or during creation of a new candidate account. As of release b1808, you cannot use LinkedIn data to update an existing candidate profile.


Since this is currently a system limitation, customers can submit an enhancement request to have the functionality (of using an existing account with Linkedin integration 2.0) considered within future development cycles by going to Customer Community Portal.
