Allow the user-defined startup to run.


[Startup]    ZSTU=n

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



This parameter has been retained for compatibility, but the ^ZSTU routine is no longer recommended for use; use the ^%ZSTART routine instead.

When ZSTU is enabled (n = 1), InterSystems IRIS® data platform runs the user-defined startup from the ^ZSTU routine.

Changing This Parameter

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

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change ZSTU 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).
