This repository contains a copy of the Oracle Database sample schemas that are installed with Oracle Database Enterprise Edition 12c. These schemas are used in Oracle documentation to show SQL language concepts. The schemas themselves are documented in Oracle Database Sample Schemas, 12c Release 1 (12.1).
The schemas are:
- HR: Human Resources
- OE: Order Entry
- PM: Product Media
- IX: Information Exchange
- SH: Sales History
- BI: Business Intelligence
Due to widespread dependence on these scripts in their current form, no pull requests for changes can be accepted.
2. Installing the Samples
CAUTION: Do not install the samples if you already have user accounts named HR, OE, PM, IX, SH or BI.
The installation scripts are designed to run on a database host with Oracle Database 12.1. Privileged database access is required during installation.
The instructions below work on Linux and similar operating systems. Adjust them for other platforms.
An alternative to using this repository is to download and install the Oracle Database 12c Release 1 Examples package for your platform.
2.1. Clone this repository
Login as the Oracle Database software owner and clone the repository, for example
cd $HOME git clone https://github.com/oracle/db-sample-schemas.git
or download and extract the ZIP file:
The schema directory should be owned by the Oracle Database software owner.
2.2. Change directory
2.3. Change all embedded paths to match your working directory
The installation scripts need your current directory embedded in
various locations. Use a text editor or the following Perl script to
make the changes, replacing occurrences of the token
with your current working directory, for example
perl -p -i.bak -e 's#__SUB__CWD__#'$(pwd)'#g' *.sql */*.sql */*.dat
2.4. Set the Oracle environment
sqlldr utility needs to be in
$PATH for correct
loading of the Product Media (PM) and Sales History (SH) schemas.
2.5. Run the installation script
Review the README.txt for information on passwords and pre-requirements. In particular, verify your default and temporary tablespace names, and choose a password for each schema.
Start SQL*Plus and run the top level installation script as discussed in README.txt:
sqlplus system/systempw@connect_string @mksample systempw syspw hrpw oepw pmpw ixpw shpw bipw users temp /your/path/to/log/ connect_string
Note: Use an absolute path and also append a trailing slash to the log directory name.
Use your current SYSTEM and SYS passwords, and also your actual default and temporary tablespace names. The passwords for the new HR, OE, PM, IX, SH and BI users will be set to the values you specify.
Using a connect string permits connections to non-container databases and pluggable database using the same syntax.
An example of connect strings for databases with services noncdb and pdb:
2.6. Review the installation logs
Review output in your log directory for errors.
3. Removing the Samples
CAUTION: This will drop user accounts named HR, OE, PM, IX, SH and BI.
3.1. Set the Oracle environment
3.2. Run the schema removal script
sqlplus system/systempw@connect_string @drop_sch.sql
When prompted, enter the SYSTEM password, a log file name, and connect string.
