How to use the 'OPA_TRACE' database package to debug PL/SQL code.

(Doc ID 2118061.1)

Last updated on MARCH 18, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Clinical - Version 4.6.0 and later
Oracle Clinical Remote Data Capture Option - Version 4.6.0 and later
Oracle Thesaurus Management System - Version 4.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this note is to provide an example of how to use the OPA_TRACE database package to debug PL/SQL code issues. The OPA_TRACE calls can be embedded in existing PL/SQL code (e.g. Validation/Derivation procedures, custom Flex Field functions in the RDC_CLIENT package) and the debug output gets written to the OPA_DEBUG table.

Note: Once the issue is resolved then the OPA_TRACE code which was added should be removed or commented out to avoid unnecessary output being written to the debug table.
