In this below tutorial, we will enable DDL replication for a table, which is already part of goldengate replication and currently, only DML transactions are getting replicated.

TABLE_NAME = APPLIANCE.CLASSTAB1

To enable DDL replication, We need to run few SQL scripts(provided under $GG_HOME)  on the source database. and update the extract parameter file.

1. Run role_setup.sql where extract is running [ SOURCE ]

conn / as sysdba

cd $GG_HOME

sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> @role_setup.sql

GGS Role setup script

This script will drop and recreate the role GGS_GGSUSER_ROLE
To use a different role name, quit this script and then edit the params.sql script to change the gg_role parameter to the preferred name. (Do not run the script.)

You will be prompted for the name of a schema for the GoldenGate database objects.
NOTE: The schema must be created prior to running this script.
NOTE: Stop all DDL replication before starting this installation.

Enter GoldenGate schema name: GATE_USER
Wrote file role_setup_set.txt

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

2. Grant the role to GATE_USER.[SOURCE]

SQL> GRANT GGS_GGSUSER_ROLE TO GATE_USER;

Grant succeeded.

3.Run the marker script:[SOURCE]

SQL> @marker_setup.sql

Marker setup script

You will be prompted for the name of a schema for the Oracle GoldenGate database objects.
NOTE: The schema must be created prior to running this script.
NOTE: Stop all DDL replication before starting this installation.

Enter Oracle GoldenGate schema name:GATE_USER

Marker setup table script complete, running verification script…
Please enter the name of a schema for the GoldenGate database objects:
Setting schema name to GATE_USER

MARKER TABLE
——————————-
OK

MARKER SEQUENCE
——————————-

Script complete.

4. Run ddl_setup.sql script [ SOURCE ]

@ddl_setup.sql

SQL> @ddl_setup.sql

Oracle GoldenGate DDL Replication setup script

Verifying that current user has privileges to install DDL Replication…

You will be prompted for the name of a schema for the Oracle GoldenGate database objects.
NOTE: For an Oracle 10g source, the system recycle bin must be disabled. For Oracle 11g and later, it can be enabled.
NOTE: The schema must be created prior to running this script.
NOTE: Stop all DDL replication before starting this installation.

Enter Oracle GoldenGate schema name:GATE_USER

Working, please wait …
Spooling to file ddl_setup_spool.txt

Checking for sessions that are holding locks on Oracle Golden Gate metadata tables …

Check complete.

Using GATE_USER as an Oracle GoldenGate schema name.

Working, please wait …

Please enter the name of a schema for the GoldenGate database objects:

5. Update the extract parameter file to include DDL

We need to add the command DDL INCLUDE MAPPED OBJNAME <SCHEMA_NAME>.<TABLE_NAME>

It will look as below

ggsci> edit params ext1

EXTRACT EXT1
SETENV (ORACLE_SID=”SRCDB”)
SETENV (ORACLE_HOME = “/oracle/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1”)
SETENV (NLS_LANG = “AMERICAN_AMERICA.AL32UTF8”)
userid ggate, PASSWORD ggate123
FETCHOPTIONS FETCHPKUPDATECOLS, USESNAPSHOT, USELATESTVERSION
DBOPTIONS ALLOWUNUSEDCOLUMN
DISCARDFILE /ggate/app/oracle/product/12.2.1.0.3/TST/EXT1.dsc, APPEND, MEGABYTES 100
EXTTRAIL /ggate/app/oracle/product/12.2.1.0.3/TST/E5
DDL INCLUDE MAPPED OBJNAME APPLIANCE.CLASSTAB1
TABLE APPLIANCE.CLASSTAB1;

No changes required to extract pump and replicat parameter files.

6. Restart the extract [ SOURCE]

gggsci> stop ext1

ggsci> start ext1

GGSCI> info all

Program Status Group Lag at Chkpt Time Since Chkpt

MANAGER RUNNING
EXTRACT RUNNING EXT1 00:00:00 00:00:03
EXTRACT RUNNING EXT1P 00:00:00 00:00:01

Now DDL replication is enabled. Do some DDL changes on source.

— DDL change on source

SQL> alter table appliance.classtab1 add ( SCHOOL varchar2(20));

Table altered.

SQL> desc appliance.classtab1
Name Null? Type
—————————————– ——– ———————
SR NUMBER
CLASS VARCHAR2(20)
SCHOOL VARCHAR2(20)

— Check the status of extract:

GGSCI () 18> stats EXT1

Sending STATS request to EXTRACT EXT1 …

Start of Statistics at 2017-07-25 10:50:03.

DDL replication statistics (for all trails):

*** Total statistics since extract started ***
Operations 1.00
Mapped operations 1.00 —- >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> DDL CHANGE CAPTURES BY EXTRACT.
Unmapped operations 0.00
Other operations 0.00
Excluded operations 0.00

Output to /GGATE_USER/TRAILFILE/S2:

— Check the table in target db( replicate side)

SQL> desc appliance.classtab1
Name Null? Type
—————————————– ——– —————————-
SR NUMBER
CLASS VARCHAR2(20)
SCHOOL VARCHAR2(20)

The column has been added to target database also.
