Setting a Master Configuration Parameter

To set a master configuration parameter, set it at the Greenplum Database master instance. If it is also a session parameter, you can set the parameter for a particular database, role or session. If a parameter is set at multiple levels, the most granular level takes precedence. For example, session overrides role, role overrides database, and database overrides system.
