Allow custom routines during callin close.


[Startup]    CallinHalt=n

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


When CallinHalt is enabled (n = 1), InterSystems IRIS® data platform executes the CALLIN^%ZSTOP routine entry each time an external program ends a CALLIN. When this parameter is not enabled, the routine is not executed.

For more information about CALLIN, see Using The Callin API.

Changing This Parameter

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

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change CallinHalt 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 Editing the Active CPF).
