ORA-1405 When Starting the Capture Process - DBMS_RULE_ADM.ALTER_RULE Nulls Out the Rule Condition

(Doc ID 358674.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 21, 2006

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 9.2 to 10.2
This problem can occur on any platform.


When creating a Streams capture rule implicitly using dbms_streams_adm.create_capture, and then modifying it with dbms_rule_adm.alter_rule to add a very long rule condition (about 7800 characters in length), the rule condition is nulled out. The procedure executes successfully and no error is reported, but the rule condition itself is erased. This can result in a ORA-1405 'fetched column value is NULL' when starting the capture process.
