Version 24.2 of Ora2Pg, a free and reliable tool used to migrate an Oracle database to PostgreSQL, has been officially released and is publicly available for download.

This release fix several issues reported since last release and adds some new features and improvements.

  • Allow DATA_EXPORT_ORDER to take a filename at value to be able to give a custom table order. The file must contain the ordered list of the tables. One table per line in upper case for Oracle.
  • Add progress bar when option --oracle_speed is used to avoid waiting for the whole data export ends.
  • Add replacement of the BITAND function by the & operator.
  • Add option -f, --format to set the output format for the reports. It can be html or json. Default to html.
  • Add automatic addition of the partition key to the primary key. Prefix all columns with the alias in the query to get data from Oracle.
  • Add information about MSSQL masked columns in report build by action SHOW_COLUMN.
  • Add information about columnstore and compression on MSSQL tables with action SHOW_TABLE.
  • Add new configuration directive PARTITION_BY_REFERENCE to defined how to export Oracle partition by reference. Possible values are none, duplicate or the number of hash partitions to create.

    Value none mean no translation and export of partition by reference like before. Value duplicate will duplicate the referenced column in the partitioned table and apply the same partitioning from the referenced table to the partitioned table. If the value is a number, the table will be partitioned with the HASH method using the value as the modulo. For example if you set it to 4 it will create 4 HASH partitions. Default valuer is none to not export the partitions by reference definition.
