I think this one can be but if you have better idea or you know how I change modifiedby title in java please help me.


ModifiedBy references a user. The Title is the display name of the user and can not be modified using the client api.

The docs state:

Not all functionality that you find in the Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles assembly is available from client APIs. For example, you have to use the server object model to create or change user profiles because they're read-only from client APIs (except the user profile picture).
