Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 9.2 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On systems where OLS is installed the constraint check fires the SELECT VPD policy defined on the parent table, this may result in unexpected error ORA-28117 "integrity constraint violated - parent record not found" .

 Create the policy function and the tables :

After searching within v$SQLAREA with SQL_ID, following SQLs were found: 

02b8139tjanr9 = INSERT INTO T1(NPKID) VALUES (1001) 
9k2u3b033rb0z = INSERT INTO T2(NPKID, NFKID) VALUES (2002, 1001)
