StartupChores is a configuration parameter that identifies a list of chores that run at database startup.

Parameter type: optional, static

To run a chore at startup before users login or other scheduled chores run, add this parameter with the names of the chores to run separated by a colon, for example:


If this parameter is not specified, then no chores are executed at database startup. If the chore name specified does not match an existing chore then an error is written to the database log and execution continues to the next specified chore.

The value of the configuration parameter can be retrieved by a client application as a database property called StartupChores using the existing TM1ObjectPropertyGet call.

This is a read-only property and set operations are rejected. The value of the property can be changed only by editing the configuration file and restarting the database.
