CON_GUID_TO_ID

Syntax

Description of con_guid_to_id.gif follows
Description of the illustration con_guid_to_id.gif

Purpose

CON_GUID_TO_ID takes as its argument a container GUID (globally unique identifier) and returns the container ID. For container_guid, specify a raw value. The function returns a NUMBER value.

This function is useful in a multitenant container database (CDB). If you use this function in a non-CDB, then it returns 0.

Example

The following query displays the ID and GUID for all containers in a CDB. The GUID is stored as a 16-byte RAW value in the V$CONTAINERS view. The query returns the 32-character hexadecimal representation of the GUID. The sample output shown is for the purpose of this example.

SELECT CON_ID, GUID
  FROM V$CONTAINERS;

    CON_ID GUID
---------- --------------------------------
         1 DB0A9F33DF99567FE04305B4F00A667D

         4 D990F4BD938865C1E04305B4F00ACA18

The following statement returns the ID for the container whose GUID is represented by the hexadecimal value D990F4BD938865C1E04305B4F00ACA18. The HEXTORAW function converts the GUID's hexadecimal representation to a raw value.

SELECT CON_GUID_TO_ID(HEXTORAW('D990F4BD938865C1E04305B4F00ACA18')) "Container ID"
  FROM DUAL;
