How to Handle Materialized Views When You Upgrade or Clone a Database

(Doc ID 1406586.1)

Last updated on APRIL 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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.
