Missing region sources after copy/export

After copying an application or exporting/importing an application all region sources of chart regions are missing and so the application is not usable at all because all series with Source-Location=Region Source are invalid.
All other Chart regions where the series have Source-Location=Local Database and SQL Query are ok.

After starting the copy and import of an application one gets the message:

Ajax call returned server error ORA-06592: CASE not found while executing CASE statement for .

The source region is only missing if it is declared with "Location=Local Database Type=Table / View Table Owner=Parsing Schema Table Name=nnn"

If the source region is declared as SqlQuery then the copy or imported application has no missing source.

Issue replicates on APEX 20.2 with 20.2 patch set applied on

ORA-06592: CASE not found while executing CASE statement for .

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create application and set Source-Location=Region Source to Local Database->Table/View
2. Either export/import the application or Copy the application
3. Observe the region source is not kept and one must select anew.


 Upgrade to APEX 20.2
