Last updated on NOVEMBER 28, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When synonyms are imported, the schema name referred in SCHEMAS parameter of impdp is appended to the table name:

At source:

CREATE OR REPLACE SYNONYM "GES_QTC"."CCRM_FISCAL_PERIODS" FOR "CCRM_FISCAL_PERIODS"@"GES_TO_CCRM.CISCO.COM"

At target after import:

SQL> select dbms_metadata.get_ddl ('SYNONYM', 'CCRM_FISCAL_PERIODS', 'GES_QTC') from dual;

CREATE OR REPLACE SYNONYM "GES_QTC"."CCRM_FISCAL_PERIODS" FOR "GES_QTC"."CCRM_FISCAL_PERIODS"@"GES_TO_CCRM.CISCO.COM";

Due to this problem, the imported synonyms are not able to be used. Especially the issue is with the synonym which uses db link to access the source table.
