STATUS Column in DBA_OBJECTS doesn't reflect the status in DBA_INDEXES (Doc ID 1945979.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Eventhough index became "unusable", the STATUS column of "DBA_OBJECTS" still shows "VALID" for that particular index.

However, the "STATUS" column of "DBA_INDEXES" for this particular index is "UNUSABLE".

Question: Why is the "STATUS" column reflected correctly in DBA_INDEXES but not reflected in DBA_OBJECTS?
