Could you verify the completeness of following prerequisities on pag. 441 of the "Backup and Recovery User's Guide 12c Release 1 (12.1) E17630-14"
Prerequisites for Recovering Tables and Table Partitions from RMAN Backups
■ The target database must be in read-write mode.
■ The target database must be in ARCHIVELOG mode.
■ You must have RMAN backups of the tables or table partitions as they existed at the point in time to which you want recover these objects.
■ To recover single table partitions, the COMPATIBLE initialization parameter for target database must be set to 11.1.0 or higher.
those prerequisities are valid for CDBs or non-CBDs, but if you want to recover tables or table partitions in PDBs a different prerequisite is needed.
Indeed if you have a backup of only the pluggable database including the missing table (the third prerequisite above), but you don't have any backup of the container database the command...
recover table ... of pluggable database ... until scn ... auxiliary destination ...
will fail with the following errors:
RMAN-00571: =========================================================== RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS =============== RMAN-00571: =========================================================== RMAN-03002: failure of recover command at 02/12/2014 12:22:18 RMAN-03015: error occurred in stored script Memory Script RMAN-06026: some targets not found - aborting restore RMAN-06023: no backup or copy of datafile 3 found to restore RMAN-06023: no backup or copy of datafile 4 found to restore RMAN-06023: no backup or copy of datafile 1 found to restore
So to recover table in PDBs you must have also the RMAN backups of the CDB or in the opposite way it's not sufficient to have only the backups of the pluggable database, because during the creation of the auxiliary database the SYS, SYSAUX and the UNDO tablespace are required.
