Question:
Does CA PPM support the use of Oracle 12 aliases in the connection strings?
Environment:
CA PPM - All versions certified with Oracle 12 and above
Answer:
This is not something we explicitly support as its not documented, but it should not cause any issues as long as the connection string works when tested. However, at any point in the future, IF there were to be some type of issue that comes up for which CA Support feels that the use of the alias may be attributing to the issue, then we may ask the customer to remove the alias and connect directly to the database without the alias to see if the problem still occurs.
