How to control temperature settings through Cura 3.2.x on Ultimaker2?

I have an Ultimaker2 + Olssen Block and I use Cura 3.2.1.

I have read that it is possible to tune several temperature settings for the Ultimaker2 through Cura.
I have been deep digging in the Material settings in Cura, but have not succeeded in finding and activating them.

How do I do that?

Go to the Printers pane of the preferences, press Machine Settings, and in the dialog that opens set the GCode flavour to "Marlin".

Thanks for responding ahoeben.

I have just changed the GCode setting to "Marlin" and seen that it enables diversified settings for temperatures.
One question left, now the GCode setting is changed from Ultimaker to Marlin, is this GCode still compatible with my Ultimaker 2 + Olssen Block?

Yes, it is still very much compatible with the UM 2 with Olssen Block, but changing the material type on the LCD panel will no longer affect the print; the temperature, flow & cooling options set in Cura override whatever you set on the printer.

And if it's allready set to Marlin?

Then you can edit temperatures in the Custom settings.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
