Impdp With REMAP_SCHEMA And Inexistant Source Schema Might Import Unwanted Data.
Suppose you have a dump file containing a table called TEST from schema A and you would like to import table A.TEST into schema B.
For this, you specify 'REMAP_SCHEMA=A:B' as parameter when calling Datapump Import.
In this case, all is fine.
However, in case you enter a typo or specify a parameter like 'REMAP_SCHEMA=C:B' and source schema C does not exist in the dump file, than table A.TEST is still imported but in schema A.
Number of Customers are using the 'REMAP_SCHEMA' parameter to move objects from one schema to another and would prefer the Import to stop in case of mistakes/typos in the 'REMAP_SCHEMA' parameters.
