ADMIN_REVALIDATE_DB_OBJECTS inconsistent with SYSCAT.INVALIDOBJECTS

  • 1.  ADMIN_REVALIDATE_DB_OBJECTS inconsistent with SYSCAT.INVALIDOBJECTS

    Posted 30 days ago

    Hi,

    I find much regrettable that SYSCAT.INVALIDOBJECTS has 'F' for objectype, meaning "routine", when ADMIN_REVALIDATE_DB_OBJECTS has object_type 'Function' or 'Procedure'.

    Can't you be simple and support both 'F' and 'P' so that we would logically call in scripts ADMIN_REVALIDATE_DB_OBJECTS with correct object_type, or support 'Routine' in this procedure ?

    Best regards, JMB

    Hi Jean-Marc,

     

    I looked into this and I believe it is the unfortunate result of multiple object types being mapped onto the same representative value in SYSCAT.INVALIDOBJECTS. All routines (e.g. methods, procedures, functions) that have their own independent identity (and catalogs) in the product get mapped to the generic 'F' for Routines in this catalog.

     

    As a result, when you try to move backwards from the INVALIDOBJECTS catalog to revalidate the objects, you are required to unwind the mapping and get the right object type when calling ADMIN_REVALIDATE_DB_OBJECTS. As you point out, there isn't an equivalent to the hand-waving "routine" value used in SYSCAT.INVALIDOBJECTS which would cover all the things mapped to the F value.

     

    One option today is to pass in null for the object type which means that all of the object types are considered. This would cover everything but would cover more than "routines", it would basically look for everything with the same schema and name as the input.

     

    I don't see us changing anything here in the short term given our other priorities since this has been this way for a while. If you want to suggest an option like "routines" which would limit the set to just function, procedures, and methods, you could do so using the RFE process.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Paul.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your comments. It was more a comment / question about why you can end up with such a design with different flags and be non consistent ...

    Best regards,
