I'm struggling with how to do this, and hoping somebody could assist with some ideas.
Oracle Golden Gate - general question. Version shouldn't be specific, however, I am currently running on:
Golden Gate: 188.8.131.52.170919
Oracle DB: 184.108.40.206.0
Using Golden Gate, Integrated Extract (and Replicat).
I have setup a test table using Interval partitioning (by month). I have setup a GG flow to capture the data/rows for this table.
This works perfectly, no issues.
I then try to setup/enable DDL replication for this table.
I add the following to the extract .prm file:
DDL INCLUDE OBJNAME myschema.*
and that works perfectly. It captures ALL ddl ..
ALTER TABLE TRUNCATE TABLE CREATE INDEX ... etc.
Now, I want to restrict the DDL so that it captures ONLY :
ALTER TABLE myschema.* DROP PARTITION ...
that's it ... no TRUNCATEs, no DROPs, no other ALTER TABLE
ie ALTER TABLE myschema.mytable MODIFY ( col ....
don't want to capture that - for example.
I've tried some of the following .. all to no avail:
DDL INCLUDE OBJNAME myschema.* & INCLUDE OPTYPE DROP & INCLUDE OBJTYPE 'PARTITION'
this still allows ALL DDL
DDL INCLUDE OBJNAME myschema.* & INCLUDE OPTYPE DROP & INCLUDE OBJTYPE 'PARTITION' & EXCLUDE ALL
This doesn't allow ANY DDL at all ..
DDL INCLUDE OBJNAME myschema.* & INCLUDE OPTYPE DROP & INCLUDE OBJTYPE 'PARTITION' & EXCLUDE OPTYPE TRUNCATE & EXCLUDE OPTYPE CREATE
That manages to prevent TRUNCATEs and CREATEs .. however, I can't add "ALTER" or "DROP" .. as it starts affecting/preventing the DROP PARTITION clause.
I've opened a ticket with Oracle to get some feedback from them .. however, so far, not much luck there. I was hoping somebody here might actually know how to do this ?
