ODI Does Not Reverse Engineer Foreign Key after Datastore Table is Renamed (Doc ID 2713968.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 09, 2021

Oracle Data Integrator - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Data Integrator (ODI), when a table in one datastore references a table in another datastore with a foreign key (FK), changing the name of the datastore results in a reverse-engineer that is missing that foreign key.

For example:

  1. There is one data server with two physical schemas called SchemaA and SchemaB.
  2. For SchemaA, the model ModelA is created. After, datastore TableA that contains a primary key is reversed-engineered.
  3. TableA is renamed to TableAX.
  4. For the second physical schema, SchemaB, model ModelB is created. Here, the datastore TableB needs to be reversed-engineered so that it has a foreign key pointing to TableA.
  5. The TableB is reversed-engineered, however, the foreign key pointing to the renamed TableAX does not appear.
