From Oracle GoldenGate 12c onwards, a new feature for security purpose has been introduced known as CREDENTIALSTORE. Using this feature, we can manage the USER ID’s and it’s corresponding passwords which are used by the Oracle GoldenGate processes to interact with the Local Databases for the use of Replication.


So the usernames and passwords will be secured. Upon using this feature the usernames and passwords used in the Oracle GoldenGate process groups or even when we login as an Admin user in the GGSCI, will not be displayed. An optional ALIAS name can be used instead of entering the username and password.

SHOWSYNTAX : Oracle GoldenGate Tool To Debug A Replicat


Oracle GoldenGate has provided an excellent parameter to debug the Replicat process called SHOWSYNTAX. Obviously this should be used in the Target side (Replicat). This parameter is used to start an interactive session.

Upon using this parameter, you can view each and every Replicat SQL statement before it is applied.

These parameters are configured in the Replicat side and they are set to continue the data processing if there are some data integrity issues on the Target tables. Upon setting these parameters Replicat Process tries to resolve the duplicate and missing records when applying the sql on the Target tables. These parameters are mainly used during the Initial Loads, when loading the data for synchronizing the Target Tables with Source.
