How do I find and open the Data Pump Import Wizard in SQL Developer 4.1?

I opened the Help search tool in SQL Developer 4.1 and searched for Data Pump, and found directions that include:

1.) Select View > DBA from the View menu.
2.) Expand a connection in DBA Navigator.
3.) Right click on Import Jobs.
4.) Select Data Pump Import Wizard.

The problem is that, when I expand a connection in what seems to be DBA Navigator (after selecting View > DBA), there is no Import Jobs option, even though there are many other options listed. I did go to the trouble of expanding every single option including nested submenus, and there still was no Import Jobs option anywhere.

In addition to the embedded help within SQL Developer 4.1, I also googled for instructions, but the results were only for version 3.1, such as this link.

I am trying to import data into an Oracle 11g r2 database using the Data Pump Import Wizard.

So how do I open the Data Pump Import Wizard in SQL Developer 4.1?

  • @JSapkota Thank you. The link says to right click the Data Pump Import Wizard option, but it does not say what to right click on to get that option, and I cannot seem to find that option no matter where I click within a connection's sub-options. Feb 28, 2016 at 23:20

    @JSapkota THANK YOU for talking with me about this. Your interaction helped me find the answer myself. I was digging into the Connections Navigator. I did not realize that the DBA Navigator required me to add a connection from those listed in the Connections Navigator before I could see the options like Data Pump. This question is now answered.

View > DBA

Add a Connection

Expand the tree.

Go to the Data Pump node.

Expand, expand again to get to existing DP Import Jobs.

This will show the results of

            job_name name,
            || '.'
            || job_name fname,
            'DATAPUMP_IMPORT_JOBS' type
            TRIM(operation) = 'IMPORT'

To create a new one, right-click and use the Wizard.
