Calls to getParameterMetaData Result in ORA-904 Errors in SYS.AUD$ (Doc ID 2749918.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 17, 2022

Applies to:

JDBC - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using any currently-supported JDBC driver against a 19c database results in the following error in the SYS.AUD$ table:

ORA-904: invalid identifier

This happens when a call in the Java code is made to stmt.getParameterMetaData().
The problem doesn't occur if this method call is removed.

This has no impact on the Java program; it runs without error and does not result in an application-side error; the error appears only in the server-side SYS.AUD$ table, when auditing is enabled, such as from the following instruction:

audit execute procedure whenever not successful;

The error is seen when running the following query:

select userid, returncode, obj$creator, obj$name, sqltext from sys.aud$;
