You defined a program (or job) with arguments using the package DBMS_SCHEDULER. Then, you either:

- exported the user using DataPump export (expdp) with parameter CONTENT=METADATA_ONLY and imported (impdp) the dump into a new schema, or:

- exported the user using DataPump export (expdp) with parameter CONTENT=ALL and imported (impdp) the dump with parameter CONTENT=METADATA_ONLY (or EXCLUDE=TABLE_DATA)

The fresh imported schema doesn't contain the program/job arguments anylonger.
