Symptoms

"DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL" Does Not Show Interval Partitions created by the system for interval partitioned tables and indexes.

In the case of Interval Partitioning, New Partitions are created automatically when corresponding row is inserted.  This newly created partition information will be displayed in "DBA_TAB_PARTITIONS" dictionary view. However when the DDL is queried using function "DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL", then this information is not shown. 

"DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL" package behaves the same way for local indexes of Interval Partitioned tables as well.
