Import/Export and the Scheduler

You must use the Data Pump utilities (impdp and expdp) to export Scheduler objects. You cannot use the earlier import/export utilities (IMP and EXP) with the Scheduler. Also, Scheduler objects cannot be exported while the database is in read-only mode.

An export generates the DDL that was used to create the Scheduler objects. All attributes are exported. When an import is done, all the database objects are recreated in the new database. All schedules are stored with their time zones, which are maintained in the new database. For example, schedule "Monday at 1 PM PST in a database in San Francisco" would be the same if it was exported and imported to a database in Germany.

Although Scheduler credentials are exported, for security reasons, the passwords in these credentials are not exported. After you import Scheduler credentials, you must reset the passwords using the SET_ATTRIBUTE procedure of the DBMS_SCHEDULER package.
