Information in this document applies to any platform.


On a 12.2 database, when adding a Partition to the Composite Partition table with Spatial data, ORA-13209 occurs.

For Example:
SQL> alter table test_pg add partition test_2018 values ('20181208105423')
  2 (subpartition test_20181208105423_5 values (5));
alter table test_pg add partition test_20181208105423 values ('20181208105423')
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-29874: warning in the execution of ODCIINDEXALTER routine
ORA-29960: line 1, Check Oracle Error
ORA-13209: Internal error while reading SDO_INDEX_METADATA table.

# Even in tables with Spatial data, no error occurs in a multi-column List Partition (instead of a Composite Partition).

After the error occurred, the new partition appears to have been added.
