When performing a database migration using datapump, using schema export/import like this:

export from 11g database
expdp system/ SCHEMAS=schema_name directory=U03_PUMP_DIR dumpfile=file.dmp logfile=log_file.log flashback_time=systimestamp

import into 19c PDB
impdp system/@machinevm:<port>/gisibt DIRECTORY=PUMP_DIR DUMPFILE=file.dmp LOGFILE=log_file.log

After import it seems some spatial data is missing for views using the SDO_GEOMETRY datatype. In PL/SQL developer there is an option 'Update Spatial Metadata' - when right clicking on the view and performing this action, the issue is resolved.
How to avoid this time consuming task, if there are hundreds of views that need to be processed.
