There are several ways by which to upgrade or clone a database. For example, (1) the Database Upgrade Assistant (DBUA), (2) RMAN clone to auxiliary database, (3) copying files from a cold/hot backup, (4) export/import, or (5) export/import with transportable tablespaces (TTS). Your materialized views should still be fast refreshable after one of these operations, provided you follow the actions given below for your particular case.
This note is applicable only to read-only materialized views; updatable materialized views are not covered here.
