Audit/CDC Replication : adding table or alter existing table

Follow
Problem Description

This article explains how to add or alter a table to Audit/CDC(Change Data Capture) replication.

Steps Performed

1. First create new table on target with selected values, ie.

Create table reptest3 (

OLD_ID                      NUMBER(8),

NEW_ID                     NUMBER(8),

OLD_FLAG                  VARCHAR2(4),

NEW_FLAG                VARCHAR2(4),

OPERATION              CHAR(1),

DATE_CHANGE         DATE,

SCN                            NUMBER,

OLD_MYFLAG            VARCHAR2(1),

NEW_MYFLAG           VARCHAR2(1),

primary key (id)

);

 

2. Create table on source, ie.

create table reptest3 (

id number(8),

flag varchar2(4),

primary key (id)

);

 

3. In console window pause mine/apply

dbvrep> pause mine

dbvrep> pause apply

 

4. Run below commands

(note lines in the file <DDC>-setup.dbvrep under config for guidance

  1. a) if you setup using ddl_run option for the format of commands substituting table name
  2. b) if you used ddl_file you can copy/paste lines you need into another file & substitute table name

)

 

dbvrep> PREPARE OFFLINE TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" NODDL RENAME TO "BRIAN"."REPTEST3"

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" INSERT YES

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" DELETE YES

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" UPDATE YES

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" OLDCOL_PREFIX old_

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" NEWCOL_PREFIX new_

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" OPCOL OPERATION

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" SCN SCN

CDCAUDIT TABLE "TODD"."REPTEST3" TIMESTAMP_CHANGE DATE_CHANGE

 

5. Un-pause MINE/APPLY

dbvrep> resume mine

dbvrep> resume apply
