Personalization PeopleCode Functions

There are two PeopleCode functions related to personalizations. These functions are:

  • GetUserOption.

  • SetUserOption.

If you intend to modify or create custom personalizations, you may need to employ the use of these functions. Refer to the PeopleCode documentation for use and syntax.
