Information in this document applies to any platform.
Currently, a single partition cannot be truncated by using the data pump parameter table_exists_action=truncate.
You must truncate that partition manually using the ALTER TABLE TRUNCATE PARTITION clause prior to running the import.
If you attempt to use Data Pump parameter table_exists_action=truncate, or even the replace option
be aware that the complete table will be truncated, not just the partition being imported!
