GG studio allows for group names greater then 8 characters

(Doc ID 2132030.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate Studio - Version 12.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When we create an extract/replicate/pump of 8 characters or longer, the GG studio will proceed and verify the configuration. This is a bug as you are not allowed to have any GG processes more than 8 characters long. After we deploy the configuration, the parameters files are written to the ./dirprm folder on the source/target server and no other action is taken.
