Copies a file into the ADR from the external file system.

To edit a file in a package, you must copy the file out to a designated directory, edit the file, and copy it back into the package. You may want to do this to delete sensitive data in the file before sending the package to Oracle Support.

Syntax and Description

ips copy in file filename [to new_name][overwrite] package package_id
     [incident incid]

Copies an external file, filename (specified with full path name) into the ADR, associating it with an existing package, package_id, and optionally an incident, incid. Use the to new_name option to give the copied file a new file name within the ADR. Use the overwrite option to overwrite a file that exists already.


This example copies a trace file from the file system into the ADR, associating it with package 2 and incident 4:

ips copy in file /home/nick/trace/orcl_ora_13579.trc to <ADR_HOME>/trace/orcl_ora_13579.trc package 2 incident 4
