Oracle Product Hub - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Error is generated by EGO_USER_ATTRS_DATA_PVT.Process_User_Attrs_Data when Debug is turned on.

On analysis we found that this is caused by the variable definition l_output_dir VARCHAR2(512); in the procedure EGO_USER_ATTRS_DATA_PVT.Set_Up_Debug_Session which is called by the API when it is invoked with debug level > 0. The length of the utl_file_dir in v$parameter where we are getting this error id 554 characters.

On further analysis we found that a similar issue was addressed by the Patch 10255150 which is related to version 11.5.10.2.
