Bug 23224813 - Oracle GoldenGate Studio does not display any error while deleting assigned SQL Server or MYSQL database connection

Oracle GoldenGate Studio does not display an error when you try to delete a SQL Server or MySQL database connection that is already assigned to Deployment profile from Resources Navigator. The resource is not deleted.

Bug 23196883 - Oracle GoldenGate Studio does not generate default parameters when the instance database type is changed

When you create an Oracle GoldenGate instance with the Oracle database type, Oracle GoldenGate Studio generates the parameter file properly. However, when database type has been changed to some other database type, like SQL Server, Oracle GoldenGate Studio does not generate default parameter file for the changed Oracle GoldenGate instance database type.

You can workaround this by changing the database type in the Oracle GoldenGate Instance Resource dialog and dragging and dropping that resource into the diagram again. The Properties Inspector is then refreshed and the proper files will be generated.

No warning message is displayed if you select the Target only, Hub, Target, and Hub Only templates without archivedlogonly mode.

1.4.5 Release— Initial Release

  • The Deployment History tab is not populated.

  • The Deployment Profile wizard does not allow you to deselect the enable initial load option. However, you can disable the initial load prior to deployment by going to the Deployment Profile Overview subtab (next to Deployment View subtab), select Deployment Configuration, and then deselect all initial loads or just the initial loads for specific replication paths.

  • For online deployments, the GLOBALS file with the checkpoint table name must be in place before deployment or the initial load, classic or coordinated Replicat will fail to be added. This does not affect integrated Replicat/apply.

  • Initial load for redeployments will load all tables, new and existing alike. It will not load only new tables.

  • It is possible that changes to diagrams are not reflected in the user interface. If this occurs simply select Save, then close and reopen the tab.

  • If you select a column as a key in the Key Column Property Inspector for the mapping editor and save it, it becomes permanent even if you deselect later.

  • Deleting an explicitly mapped column name from the Column Mapping Editor results in an internal name for that column name remaining in the parameter file.

  • The Oracle GoldenGate Studio repository should be UTF8 or Unicode if using multibyte table names.

  • Non-ASCII characters used for Oracle GoldenGate connection names sometimes throws an error when attempting to do an online deployment.

  • Export and Import utilities cannot be used with multibyte characters.

  • The Filter Table option for the database connection in the Global Resource Library does not work with multibyte table names.

  • If conflicting parameters are set, such as start with BEGIN timestamp and CSN, it is not detected and both options are present in the parameter file.

  • In the Global Resource Library, if a database is associated with a deployment profile, then you cannot change the database connection name.

  • In this initial release, only Oracle Database source and targets have been certified.

  • When generating the Oracle GoldenGate files locally the ZIP file is corrupted. However, the unzipped versions of the files are written out correctly.

  • After importing a project, solution or mapping, you may need to use the refresh button before it is shown in the page.
