I'm a colleague of the thread starter and like to jump in as this is an issue for us which we need to solve.
Some more infos which might help:
We are running the OWB 188.8.131.52.0 on Windows 32 Bit
We have the following patches installed:
None of the later patches has been installed, since none of the Bugs that were fixed affected us.
In a Mapping on a table-Operator we'd like to use "PARTITION DML" for an Insert.
On the GUI when selecting the Partition the data should be inserted to (Field: DML Partiton Name), we get the following error (in this instance the partition name is 24 characters long)
"API0407: The minimum length of this filed is 0 and its maximum length is 32. You have 35 characters."
In the Drop-down Menu of DML Partition Name it says "Partition: " in front of every partition there is. Together with a Partition name of 24 Characters it sums up to 35 characters.
So it appears that the maximum length of the partition is limited to 21 characters only because "Partition: " is put in front of it.
This error also appears when editing the Properties of the table operator by OMB*PLUS (from tcl) with
OMBALTER MAPPING 'mapname' MODIFY OPERATOR 'operatorname' SET PROPERTIES (DML_PARTITION_NAME, DML_PARTITION_TYPE, PARTITION_KEY_VALUE_LIST, IS_PARTITION_INDEXED_BY_NAME) VALUES ('$partition', 'PARTITION', '$someEmptyList', 'true')
where it does not make a difference whether $partition is of the form
set partition "Partition: SOMEPARTITIONNAME"
set partition "SOMEPARTITIONNAME"
Renaming the Partitions is not an option for us, since our warehouse is running in multiple productive systems and became quite large in the last years.
Is it necessary, that "Partition: " is put infront of the partition name? Is there a way around this? Isn't the field DML_PARTITION_TYPE supposed to store the Information whether it is a partion or a subpartition?
If you wanted to use subpartitions, does the name of the subpartition then need to be even shorter since "Subpartiton: " is put infront?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions. If you need further Information, feel free to ask, I am more than happy to supply it.
