Want to keep your Oracle database running smoothly? You're in the right place! In this tutorial, we'll guide you through an essential Oracle SQL query that helps you identify invalid objects within your database. Discover how to ensure the integrity of your Oracle database and keep your system at its best with just a few simple SQL commands.
Here are examples of Oracle SQL queries to get invalid objects.
Get Invalid Objects of Current User in Oracle
To get the list of invalid objects for the current logged in user, run the following SQL query:
Select object_name, object_type, created, last_ddl_time From user_objects Where status != 'VALID'
The output would be the database objects which are invalid.
To get the list of invalid objects for other users, run the following SQL query:
Select owner, object_type, object_name From dba_objects Where status != 'VALID' Order by owner, object_type;
The above SQL query will list all the invalid objects from all the schemas.
To get the invalid database objects for a particular user, use the following SQL query:
Select object_type, object_name From dba_objects Where status != 'VALID' and owner = 'SCOTT' Order by object_type;
In Oracle Database, "objects" refer to database structures that store and manage data, as well as define the database's structure and functionality. Some common types of objects in Oracle Database include Procedures, Functions, Packages, Triggers, Tables, etc.
In the Oracle database, "invalid objects" refer to database objects that are currently in an unusable or invalid state due to various reasons. These objects cannot be executed or accessed until their issues are resolved.
To get a list of invalid objects in an Oracle database, you can use SQL queries and Oracle's data dictionary views.
