Create GoldenGate 12.2 Database User

Filed under: GoldenGate — mdinh @ 2:33 pm

Oracle GoldenGate for Windows and UNIX 12c (12.2.0.1)

First, I am disappointed that Oracle does not go above and beyond to provide SQL scripts to create GoldenGate users for the database.

There are different set of privileges depending on the version of the database:

4.1.4.2 Oracle 11.2.0.3 or Earlier Database Privileges
4.1.4.1 Oracle 11.2.0.4 or Later Database Privileges

PDB is not being used and it’s different for PDB.

Depending on whether you want to practice the least principle privileges, ggadmin user can be create with privileges for both extract (capture) and replicat (apply).

Please don’t forget to change the password from the script since it is hard coded to be same as username :=)

cr_ggadmin_12c.sql
-- 4.1.4.1 Oracle 11.2.0.4 or Later Database Privileges
set echo on lines 200 pages 1000 trimspool on tab off
define _username='GGADMIN'
-- grant privileges for capture
create user &_username identified by &_username default tablespace ggdata;
select DEFAULT_TABLESPACE,TEMPORARY_TABLESPACE from dba_users where username='&_username';
grant create session, connect, resource, alter any table, alter system, dba, select any transaction to &_username;
-- grant privileges for replicat
grant create table, lock any table to &_username;
-- grant both capture and apply
exec dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('&_username')
-- grant capture
-- exec dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('&_username','capture');
-- grant apply
-- exec dbms_goldengate_auth.grant_admin_privilege('&_username','apply');

Demo:

Clone GoldenGate 12.2

Filed under: GoldenGate — mdinh @ 9:16 am

This is what insomnia does to you.

Since GoldenGate installation is now using runInstaller, I would expect the same functionality as the database; hence, cloning GoldenGate Home.

Deinstall GoldenGate 12.2

Filed under: GoldenGate — mdinh @ 7:59 am

I always like to know how to remove software installation in the event I am not happy with how it was installed.

GoldenGate Home is at /u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01

Thinking of may be using the same directory structures as Grid Infrastructure, i.e. /u01/app/12.2.0.1/ggs01 with full release version.

oracle@arrow:pooh:/u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01
$ ls -ld deinstall/
drwxr-xr-x. 2 oracle oinstall 4096 Apr  4 00:24 deinstall/

oracle@arrow:pooh:/u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01
$ cd deinstall/

oracle@arrow:pooh:/u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01/deinstall
$ ls
deinstall.sh

oracle@arrow:pooh:/u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01/deinstall
$ ./deinstall.sh

ALERT: Ensure all the processes running from the current Oracle Home are shutdown prior to running this software uninstallation script.

Proceed with removing Oracle GoldenGate home: /u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01 (yes/no)? [no]
yes

Filed under: 11g,oracle — mdinh @ 4:50 pm

The @ automatically substitute SID.
