A Database Link (DBLINK) was created for accessing data from tables in another database source for reporting. It was run through SQL Developer and it is working fine there. When we try to run the report through Oracle Identity Manager (OIM), we get a 'System Error'. The following error message is seen in the logs.

ORA-24777: use of non-migratable database link not allowed.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

  1. Create an external database with information needed for incorporating into an OIM report.
  2. Create a DBLINK that obtains the required data from that resource.
  3. Try and use the DBLINK within an OIM Report.
