An end user may want to determine if process flows will start running once Applications Manager is brought back up.
An sql query can be run against the DB to determine if "Defer Schedules On Startup" is enabled. Log in to the Applications Manager DB, and run the following sql query as the Applications Manager user.
select so_on_line from so_operators where so_master_flag='Y';
If the string, "DEFER_CHAINS" appears in the output from the above query, then the feature is enabled. If it does not appear in the output, then the feature is not enabled.
