2 Feature Toggles

Feature toggles can be used to enable or disable features in the OMT and have an effect on the entire application. So the project can decide to use a feature or not.

By default, with introduction each new feature will be disabled.

The toggles can be configured in the database table omt."FeatureToggleDTO". Please see Reference - IOM Database Documentation for more details.
