Default FLUENT adjoint solution post processing?

Need help with the adjoint solution post processing.

I modeled a simple pipe flow problem with heated wall boundary condition in Ansys FLUENT. After the Flow Solver converges, I run the Adjoint Solver to compute the outlet temperature sensitivities. The Adjoint Solver also converges without problem.

For the result post processing, from Adjoint ->Reporting, I can get the outlet temperature sensitivities with respect to inlet temperature and inlet velocity. The results are confirmed.

My questions is how to obtain the sensitivity of outlet temperature with respect to fluid Specific Heat (Cp)? It can not be directly obtained from the Adjoint ->Reporting. Please help!

Another question: are there any UDF functions applicable to the adjoint results, so that I could retrieve needed information from adjoint solutions?
