After creating fga policies on the object, drop a column and after that drop a policy to run into ORA-28102

If a table has 2 or more FGA policies on its columns, after a column on which a FGA policy exists is dropped, the policy of that column is not dropped as per the documentation, but another policy on another column is dropped. The policy is visible in dba_audit_policies although it should have been dropped.

If one attempts to drop the policy for which the column does not exist, the user get ORA-28102: policy does not exist .

For the same table, if just 1 FGA policy is created for one column and that column is dropped, the policy is also dropped as per the documentation.

   from dba_audit_policies
   where policy_name='xx_xxx_xxxxxx_xxxxx_6'
   order by policy_column;

SQL> exec dbms_fga.disable_policy(object_schema=>'xxxxx',object_name=>'xx_xxxxx',policy_name=>'xx_xxx_xxxxxx_xxxxx_6');
BEGIN dbms_fga.disable_policy(object_schema=>'xxxxx',object_name=>'xx_xxxxx',policy_name=>'xx_xxx_xxxxxx_xxxxx_6'); END;
