This topic describes how you can use the Preferences Manager Service API (Java) to programmatically manage the Preferences Nodes.
You can manually change configuration settings from Administrator UI. To change the options, navigate to
Home>Settings>User Management> Configuration>Manual Configuration. Import

/Adobe/Adobe Experience Manager Forms/Config/UM persist are lost. The preview of User Management Import and export does not support changing configuration settings for other components. Now, these changes can be made using
Summary of stepsTo programmatically manage the Preferences Nodes, perform the following steps:
Include project files
Include necessary files in your development project. If you are creating a client application using Java, then include the necessary JAR files. If you are using web services, then make sure that you include the proxy files.
Create an PreferencesManagerService client
Before you can programmatically perform a User Management PreferencesManagerService operation, you must create a PreferencesManagerService client. With the Java API this is accomplished by creating an PreferencesManagerServiceClient object.
Invoke the appropriate role or permission operations
Once you have created the service client, you can then invoke the Preferences Manager operations. The service client allows you to read and set permissions.
