Controls the NLP heuristic
 Type: int
 Default value: 1
 Minimum value: 0
 Maximum value: 1

The NLP heuristic uses a non-linear barrier solver to find feasible solutions to non-convex quadratic models. It can often find solutions much more quickly than the alternative, but in some cases it can consume significant runtime without producing a solution. By default, the heuristic is enabled (1). Use 0 to disable the heuristic.

Note: Only affects models with nonconvex quadratic expressions in the objective or constraints
