Extension Pointers - Simple yet significant pointers #8: CRM variables



Getting and setting CRM variable values in an extension
 
CRM variables come in handy when you need global access to a variable across an entire extension. There may also be a need for user-specific data, which the user must provide at the time of installation. CRM variables come in handy in these situations as well. Let's look at how and where you can get or set the value of a CRM variable in an extension.
  • Get org variable - Fetch the value of an org/CRM variable
  • Set org variable - Set the value of an org/CRM variable 
What are the options available to get or set values for a CRM variable?
