Modifying Initialization Parameters

Top Previous Next

This modal dialog lets you change the value of some initialization parameters in the init.ora file. Depending on the parameter, either an alter system or alter session command is generated. The Initialization Parameters tab on the Database page shows you what type of alteration is allowed for each parameter. This information is obtained from the V$PARAMETER dictionary view. Hora does not let you call the dialog for parameters that cannot be changed.

The dialog shows the following information:

Initialization parameter name (read-only)

Current value of the initialization parameter (you can update this field).

Beginning with Oracle 9i, you can also add a comment at the time of update, which will later be displayed on the Initialization Parameters tab of the Database page.

You then press OK to perform the operation, or Cancel to back out.
