I know how to use transform=oid:n in a CMD box using impdp. Is there a way to add that parameter to the import when using the Datapump Import Wizard in SQL Developer?


and Chris said...

I'm not aware of a way to add it using the wizard.

But you can use the wizard to generate the PL/SQL script for you. Then add to this a call to dbms_datapump.metadata_transform to set it:

UPDATE 21 Sept 2021

As Turloch notes below, this option is now available in SQL Developer

Thanks for the quick response. I believe the Wizard does indeed show the PLSQL code it will use on one tab. I'll either do as you suggest, or just do those few imports from the command line.

OID is a sqldeveloper datapump wizard option now (but may not have been in 2016)

OID is a sqldeveloper datapump wizard option now (but may not have been in 2016 - it was added subsequent to first release.)
