#1 Cleaning the user cache

Suppose we update a user and in the process of updating we changed his data, for example, by a separate query in the database. Now the current data may not match the data we get from the cache using get_userdata() or from the data in the global variable $current_user.

To update all this data, you need to completely clear the user's cache:

$user_id = 12;
clean_user_cache( $user_id );
