2 Feature Toggles

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

By default, new features are disabled.

The toggles can be configured in the database table omt."FeatureToggleDTO". Please see Reference - IOM Database Documentation for more details.
When loaded once, the configuration of all active toggles is cached.

The following features can be managed by the toggles:

FeatureDescriptionSince Version
Order Change Requests Tab

A tab on the order details page will be displayed that lists all change requests for the order.

Order Progress Bar

A visualization of the order state on the order details page


There are several features that are still managed with other database tables and not with the feature toggle yet.
