Oracle Enterprise Metadata Manager Harvests Fail without Reporting Any Error (Doc ID 2392464.1)

Last updated on JULY 30, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Oracle Enterprise Metadata Management (OEMM), while harvesting (or importing) from a source, the harvest just fails without reporting any java stack trace that could indicate the underlining error. 

When this occurs, the import log will contain content similar to the following:

[17758/Thread-10] 2018-04-04 14:39:58 BLIB_D0029 Loaded 145238 Synonyms statistic in 184.654.

Another example of what may be seen in the log when the import finishes without error:

As a comparison, it is expected for an error import to have some information indicating the reason that the import fails, something like:

[16065/main] 2018-03-29 11:16:36 MBCM_F0029 java.lang.NullPointerException
