ORA-02069: global_names parameter must be set to TRUE tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonApril 5, 2015

Question: I am getting the error ORA-02069: global_names parameter must be set to TRUE for this operation when doing SQL over a database link. How to I fix the ORA-02069 error?

ERROR at line 31:
ORA-02069: global_names parameter must be set to TRUE for this operation

How do I fix the ORA-02069 error?  Why do I have to set global_names?

Answer: This error indicates that global_names must be set to TRUE to use a database link.  It is straightforward; the error text gives you the solution, to adjust your global_names parameter. The global_names parameter specifies whether or not the database link is required to have the same name as the database to which it connects.

The Oracle errr utility note this on the ORA-02069 error:

ORA-02069: global_names parameter must be set to TRUE for this operation

Cause: A remote mapping of the statement is required but cannot be achieved because global_names should be set to TRUE for it to be achieved

Action: Issue alter session set global_names = true if possible
