Information in this document applies to any platform.


Configuring GoldenGate on a Container (CDB) database, DBMS_GOLDENGATE_AUTH will fail with following error:


exec dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('C##GGADMIN',container=>'ALL');
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PLS-00201: identifier 'DBMS_GOLDENGATE_AUTH' must be declared

 It may fail as well with ORA-1031:

SQL> exec dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('C##GGADMIN',container=>'ALL');
BEGIN dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('C##GGADMIN',container=>'ALL'); END;

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_XSTREAM_AUTH_IVK", line 3652
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_XSTREAM_AUTH_IVK", line 93
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_XSTREAM_AUTH_IVK", line 84
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_XSTREAM_AUTH_IVK", line 123

ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_GOLDENGATE_AUTH", line 63
ORA-06512: at line 1

 When checking the ERRORSTACK trace of ORA-1031, this is the statement causing the error:

----- Current SQL Statement for this session (sql_id=263ayd21nmudv) -----
-- Goldengate PDB section
alter user "C##GGADMIN" set container_data=ALL container=CURRENT


 Configuring GoldenGate admin user against Oracle RDBMS 12.2 or higher.
