COMMIT Timestamp Does Not Include Time Zone (Doc ID 2172787.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 05, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.2.1.0.1 to 12.2.0.1.0 [Release 11.2 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We are implementing a Teradata project. In it, all target rows in Teradata will be versioned according to Oracle DB (source DB) commit timestamp. In order to extract that info, we have two token options:
TK_COMMIT = @GETENV ("GGHEADER", "COMMITTIMESTAMP")
TK_COMMIT2 = @GETENV ("TRANSACTION", "TIMESTAMP")

However, both tokens bring up local timestamp with no time zone.

Is there any way to extract those token information either with time zone or with UTC time ?
