I am running a Oracle CDC->Field renamer->JDBC Producer pipeline

It was running for 3 days with data then I get the error, "primary key columns are missing in records: []" and afterwards "Record cannot be null" which crashes the pipeline.

The JDBC Producer is in MySQL.

I have read that adding primary key to the destination table could fix the issue, but I don't understand how the source table that doesn't have a primary key would need the destination table to have a primary key, that doesn't make any logical sense ?

I would recommend you add a primary key on both source and destination tables.

Hi Grimur, actually I just encountered this error on one of my Oracle CDC pipelines, and both the source and destination tables had pks already. Problem was an update had come through for a table for which I had not enabled supplemental logging. Solution was to enable table logging per docs.

Hi KateF, I checked the tables with select * from ALL_LOG_GROUPS where LOG_GROUP_TYPE='ALL COLUMN LOGGING' and they are correct. One thing I found out was oracle database is using version 10G which could cause problems.

I notice also today that when I went to main dashboard, it would say pipe has been running for 2 days. When I click on the pipeline dashboard to see further details, it would immediately throw failed record cannot be null. I have a feeling that preview mode automatically triggers bias records ?

Grimur, so are you saying your database is actually Oracle 10G?

KateF, The Oracle CDC is a Oracle 10G database and JDBC Producer is MySQL.

I also found out that Oracle CDC "unsupported field type" would throw an error from a column type"BLOB" This is true, but later in the pipeline I am ignoring the column. I ended up setting "unsupported field type" to "send record to pipeline" as a field remover takes care of it.
