Adding new property to a user preferences


Is it possible with WM Portal 7 to extend the set of existing user preferences properties (adding new ones) ?, if yes what is the procedure ?



There are some options for extending user attributes, but would be specific to the nature of the new attributes.

You will need to do the following:

  1. Get User Preference Portlet reference (IThingID)
  2. Get the “data” property value of the User Preference Protlet.
  3. Append the new property (key=value) separated by pipe “|”
  4. Use BasicPolicy to update the properties on a User Preference Portlet.
