In addition to supplying Data Pump with configuration parameters at runtime, you can also create a parameter file containing the export or import specifications and use it as part of your Data Pump job. In this video, learn how to create a parameter file and reference it using the PARFILE parameter as part of your Data Pump expdp or impdp usage.
- [Instructor] Data pump export and import…both support the usage of parameter files.…Using a data pump parameter file…is done instead of manually supplying…each and every individual data pump configuration parameter…via the command line…to the exdp or imdp data pump utilities.…This method of using parameter files…can also help…if you wish to run scheduled export or import jobs…on a regular basis…and store the configurations options…for these jobs in a text file…which can be reused across different export…or import jobs,…so let's see an example of using a data pump parameter file…as part of an export process.…
We'll start by creating our parameter file.…In order to create our parameter file,…I'm going to use the Linux VI text editor,…so I'm typing vi and the path…where I want the parameter file…to be created,…so I'm going to type /home/oracle/export.par.…You can of course choose any name…and any location you want.…Pressing enter will create the parameter file…and open the VI text editor.…
Here we can supply all of the command line arguments…
