Display all objects related to a table
Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonJanuary 6, 2015
Question: I need a script to
display all related objects (views, constraints, indexes)
that are related to any given Oracle table name. How
can I display all indexes, views and constraints that are
attached to an Oracle table?
Answer: The Oracle data dictionary
uses separate views for the objects that are related to
Oracle tables, but you can join some of them together based
on the common table_name column:
Something like this will also work, if you are using
naming standards and including the table name in the index
object_name like '%my_tablename%';
To punch off all table and indexes for the EMP table,
execute dbms_metadata. get_ddl, select from DUAL,
and provide all required parameters as shown in Listing A.

This script will display all indexes for a table:
set echo off;
Set pages 999;
dbms_metadata.get_ddl('TABLE','DEPT','SCOTT') from dual;
