ORA-00439: feature not enabled: tips

Oracle Error Tips by Donald Burleson


Question:  I'm getting the error ORA-00439: feature not enabled,  How do I fix this?



Answer:  The Oracle docs note this on the ora-00439: feature not enabled error:

ORA-00439: feature not enabled: string
Cause: The specified feature is not enabled.
Action: Do not attempt to use this feature.

When you are shown ORA-00439, you cannot use the specified feature, as it is not enabled. 

The first thing to check is to ensure that you are using Oracle Enterprise Edition.  Here are the relative features of Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition and XE:

The most common "string" message for the ORA-00439: feature not enabled error are:

- ORA-00439: feature not enabled: Enterprise User Security?
- ORA-00439: feature not enabled: Application Role?

For the ORA-00439: feature not enabled: Enterprise User Security message, you need to set-up Enterprise User security. Fir details, see the documentation
