There are some errors that may be reported in the alert.log that are not collected as an incident or problem in the ADR repository, e.g. ORA-00020 or ORA-00942. Sometimes it could be interesting to convert such a normal error into an incident or problem in the ADR repository in order to monitor it via adrci or using EM/Database Control Tools.
