This is a limitation of LogMiner itself - the LogMiner dictionary requires write access to the database for all modes except Extracting the LogMiner Dictionary to a Flat File, which does not guarantee transactional consistency. Oracle recommends using the online catalog or extracting the dictionary from redo log files, which are the options that Data Collector offers.

See the Oracle LogMiner documentation.

@metadaddy Thank you, We enable the supplemental logging and now we are fetching the data through Online catalog only incrementals, How do we get the batch data and sync to incremental data using Oracle CDC Client?
