Oracle create index script

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonApril 8, 2015

Question: I wish to generate the create index DDL statements from my data dictionary. What script will generate the create index syntax?

Answer: The content for create index statement is kept in the dba_indexes and dba_objects views, and you can download pre-tested scripts to generate create statement from the Oracle script download.

The easiest way to punch create index DDL syntax is using the dbms_metadata package, something like this:


Another approach is to write a PL/SQL procedure to generate all create index statement for a schema:

s varchar2(4000);
for c1 in (
   select dbms_metadata.get_ddl(object_type=>'INDEX',name=>cur.index_name) from user_indexes)
   s := dbms_metadata.get_ddl(object_type=>'INDEX',name=>c1.index_name);
end loop;
dbms_output.put_line('S= '||s);

Here are additional details on using the create index statement.

In sum, if you don't want to write your own dictionary scripts, I recommend the Oracle script download.
