Developer options are mainly for debugging information or might help in one of the situations, so I thought somebody might not want them to be part of server configuration once they are set. We already disallow parameters like config_file, transaction_isolation, etc. which are disallowed to be set in postgresql.conf. Could you please explain me a bit in which situations/scenarios, do you think that allowing developer options via Alter System can be helpful? With Regards, Amit Kapila.
