ODI 12c SVN: "Compare With Repository Object" Finds Differences for Topology Object on Windows (Doc ID 2448553.1)

Last updated on APRIL 26, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)


Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 12c is integrated with Apache Subversion (SVN) Version Control System (VCS).

In a branch ODI Repository created from full tag of trunk, after populating the branch Repository from SVN and then selecting "Compare With Repository Object" Option from "Version History", there are differences found where there should be no difference.

Note that the merge <Patch 26709130> is installed. The patch has fixes for:

      <Bug 26366707> - SVN: Restore of object with "merge" results in unresolvable name conflict...
and <Bug 26577721> - SVN: "Compare Results" incorrectly finds differences for Technology objects

To reproduce:

  1. Login to "trunk" type repository, create a full tag
    Team > VCS Actions > Create Full Tag...
  2. Create "branch" in SVN:
    Team > VCS Actions > Create Branch from Tag...
  3. Login to new empty work repository, associate with SVN and configure it as the branch from previous steps
    Team > Switch Versioning Application
    Team > Settings > Edit Connection
    Team > Settings > Configure...
  4. Import all objects from SVN:
    Team > VCS Actions > Populate ODI Repository from VCS
  5. Once the import is done, check to see if anything was changed:
    Team > VCS Actions . Pending Changes

    Note no differences are found with merge <Patch 26709130> installed.
  6. Go to the "Topology" tab and right-click on "Oracle" Technology. Select "Version > Version History" and select the "Compare Versions" icon > "Compare With Repository Object" option

    The "Version Compare Results" dialog incorrectly shows items listed. There are two different cases observed:
    • Missing JDBC Password
    • JNDI Resource in SVN is empty
