Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax CREATE_STORED_OUTLINES = { true | false | category_name }
Default value There is no default value.
Basic No

CREATE_STORED_OUTLINES determines whether Oracle automatically creates and stores an outline for each query submitted during the session.


  • true

    Enables automatic outline creation for subsequent queries in the same session. These outlines receive a unique system-generated name and are stored in the DEFAULT category. If a particular query already has an outline defined for it in the DEFAULT category, then that outline will remain and a new outline will not be created.

  • false

    Disables automatic outline creation during the session. This is the default.

  • category_name

    Enables the same behavior as true except that any outline created during the session is stored in the category_name category.
