Deprecated (v1.9 and v.1.10)
Hi, I am trying to replace the deprecated API to the latest one in the Plugin code. In SetUserPreferences function, it uses ServiceLocator to get the UserProfileService. I'm not able to avoid the ServiceLocator since it uses User's service context to fetch the User's UserProfileService instance.The UserProfileService from the injunction is specific to the default user(who runs the smart service). Is there is any other way to get the User's UserProfileService using the latest library?
//get user's service context
ServiceContext sc = ServiceContextFactory.getServiceContext(ups.getUser(user).getUsername());
UserProfileService userUps = ServiceLocator.getUserProfileService(sc);
// get user preference and set locale
UserPreferences up = buildUserPreferences();
//set user preferences
Unfortunately, no. There is no way to remove the deprecated method.
Thanks Mike - I'll update our internal guidance notes to reflect this position. We're currently on an exercise to refactor code to remove our reliance on fully deprecated plug ins however we do not have to worry too much about elements of a plug in being deprecated. Cheers Paul.
