UserSettingsService setUserSetting ?

Hi,

 

As far as I can see in the UserSettingsService  API there is only method for reading settings values. Is there any possibility to write from code user setting? 

 

If not then do you plan to add this functionality and when?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Andy
You are correct, it's read only API. Currently there are no plans to provide update for user settings.

Please elaborate more what is the use case for such API.
Thanks

Update: starting from version 10.02, the apps could use the KeyValueStorageService service. It provides a Map like API, for storing and retrieving data by key. It can be used by app to store arbitrary strings... see more

Yossi, thank you for answer.

 

One of the possible usage of such API would be changing of user settings from custom UI provided by MiniApp.

I see.
There are plans to support persistancy in MiniApp in the future, I will forward your use case to R&D.

Hi Andy,

 

We have added your request to our backlog.

 

We will try to prioritize it into one of our upcoming releases, but there is no timeline for it yet.

 

Once it is scheduled to be released, we will update this thread with the relevant information.

 

Thanks,

David

Re: UserSettingsService setUserSetting ?

What is currently the best practice to set a user settings programatically? some of the user settings can not be displayed with the current capabilies of the default user settings ui.

Hi Avi,

 

Could this new service in 10.02 help?

 

The KeyValueStorageService provides a Map like API, for storing and retrieving data by key. It can be used by app to store arbitrary strings... see more
