Allow productions to auto-start when InterSystems IRIS® data platform starts.


[Startup]    EnsembleAutoStart=n

n is either 1 (true) or 0 (false). The default value is 1.


When EnsembleAutoStart is enabled, the production you set to auto-start in each interoperability-enabled namespace starts when you start InterSystems IRIS. To facilitate debugging situations involving troubled productions, you can disable this setting to prevent a production from starting.

For details on how this setting works with production settings, see the description of the Auto-Start Production field in the “Starting and Stopping Productions” chapter in Managing Productions.

Changing This Parameter

On the Startup page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Startup), in the EnsembleAutoStart row, select Edit. Select EnsembleAutoStart to enable this setting.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change EnsembleAutoStart in the Config.StartupOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
