n is either 1 (true) or 0 (false). The default value is 1.
When JobStart is enabled (n = 1), InterSystems IRIS® data platform executes the JOB^%ZSTART routine entry when a background process starts. Background processes include any processes that are started via the JOB command, plus any background server processes including ODBC or any of the language bindings. When this parameter is not enabled, the routine is not executed.
Changing This Parameter
On the Startup page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Startup), in the JobStart row, select Edit. Select JobStart to enable this setting.
Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change JobStart in the Config.Startup 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).
JobStart and JobHalt correspond to background processes. This includes any processes that are started via the JOB command, plus any background server processes including ODBC or any of the object bindings.
For more information about all these parameters, see Customizing Start and Stop Behavior with ^%ZSTART and ^%ZSTOP in the “Customizing the InterSystems IRIS System” chapter in Specialized System Tools and Utilities.
