How do we provide user access to update their own email display name?
From the Exchange Admin site, I can see there is a Roles which provide Profile Information update. How do I assigned this roles to user so that they can edit their own display name?
Please refer the attached screenshot for reference.

You need to configure a role assignment policy with the corresponding settings enabled, and assign it to users. Read here for details: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/permissions/role-assignment-policies?view=exchserver-2019

That is what I did.
I went to EAC, Permissions > User Roles. There is an existing default policy - Default Role Assignment Policy.
I have edited the policy by including two more roles to it: MyContactInformation andMyProfileInformation. (refer screenshot attached)
All the users are assigned with this default policy - Default Role Assignment Policy (refer screenshot attached). But when user login to their Account under OWA, the "Edit" button is not available for them to update their profile.

I can confirm it works fine here. Which version of Exchange are we talking about here?
In case you are talking about Exchange Online/O365, this will only work for users created directly in the cloud. Synced users will not be able to change anything.

Hi Michel, that's the problem I'm facing, it doesn't work. When user login to their Account, the "Edit" button is not available, and they get a "Why can't I edit?" link (refer screenshot).
Do I need to assigned any Admin Roles under the Active User section of their profile in Admin Portal? (refer screenshot)

@Pablo_Barros unfortunately the old OWA settings UI doesn't seem to be available for all mailboxes, but the OP can certainly try accessing it directly via the following URL: https://outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/options/myaccount
FWIW, I pinged @David Los on this, and his recommendation was to use the O365 profile page. Which doesn't seem to conform to role policies.
