Parameter in INIT.ORA for cascading triggers

What is the name of the parameter in the init.ora file that tells you how many cascading triggers you can use in an application? Is it OPEN CURSOR? OPEN TRIGGER? If not, what is the name?

I believe that the INIT.ORA parameter you seek is OPEN_CURSORS. This parameter does not limit the number of cascading triggers directly. But each open trigger has the capability to open multiple cursors. It is the total number of open cursors for that session that OPEN_CURSORS limits.
