Oracle: disable flashback

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonOctober 27, 2015


Question:  I want to disable Oracle flashback.  I set my undo_management=MANUAL and undo_retention=1.
But I have the flashback feature enabled in my database.  How do I turn off the flashback feature?


Answer:  Do you mean disable flashback database to turn-off flashback query?  There are several ways to disable Oracle flashback, depending on your release of Oracle.  The first releases with flashback (9i) have the dbms_flashback package:

exec dbms_flashback.disable;

We also see the alter database command to turn off flashback query (not the flashback database) feature.

10g SQL> alter database flashback off;
