Remove SQL*Plus Reprompting on Error (Doc ID 1680304.1)

Last updated on APRIL 04, 2020

Applies to:

SQL*Plus - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When connecting to a database using:
  sqlplus <USERID>/<PASSWORD>

in case of error, for example: ORA-1033 or ORA-01017: invalid username/password, it prompts for the username two times.

Can the prompting for username "Enter user-name:"  be removed? The issue is that the screen stays on until it is manually exited.  This is not good in the automation process.
