Other case is as follows.

 

move_qt_pkg.move_queue_table procedure execution failes with ORA-00990 error.

Customer or the applicaiton has granted “ENQUEUE/DEQUEUE WITH GRANT OPTION” privileges to “APPS” user on the AQ table owned APPLSYS.

The move_qt package is trying to maintain this privilege when creating a intermediate Queue table for reorg purpose.

SOLUTION

To avoid the move_qt package failure we need to remove this external user grant privielges and then regrant the privilege once the queue table is moved successfully to New tablespace.

Example:

SQL> select * from dba_tab_privs where table_name like '%WF_JMS_OUT%';

GRANTEE                        OWNER                          TABLE_NAME                     GRANTOR                        PRIVILEGE                                GRA HIE

APPS                           APPLSYS                        WF_JMS_OUT                     APPLSYS                        ENQUEUE                                  YES NO
APPS                           APPLSYS                        WF_JMS_OUT                     APPLSYS                        DEQUEUE                                  YES NO



SQL> EXECUTE DBMS_AQADM.REVOKE_QUEUE_PRIVILEGE(    privilege => 'ENQUEUE', queue_name => 'APPLSYS.WF_JMS_OUT',     grantee => 'APPS');

SQL> EXECUTE DBMS_AQADM.REVOKE_QUEUE_PRIVILEGE(    privilege => 'DEQUEUE', queue_name => 'APPLSYS.WF_JMS_OUT',     grantee => 'APPS');

SQL> select * from dba_tab_privs where table_name like '%WF_JMS_OUT%';

SQL> exec move_qt_pkg.move_queue_table('APPLSYS','WF_JMS_OUT','APPS_TS_QUEUES','APPS_TS_QUEUES_REORG')




SQL> EXECUTE DBMS_AQADM.GRANT_QUEUE_PRIVILEGE(    privilege => 'ENQUEUE', queue_name => 'APPLSYS.WF_JMS_OUT',     grantee => 'APPS');

SQL> EXECUTE DBMS_AQADM.GRANT_QUEUE_PRIVILEGE(    privilege => 'DEQUEUE', queue_name => 'APPLSYS.WF_JMS_OUT',     grantee => 'APPS');
