Oracle is a leader in blockchain technology and began its journey with the Oracle Blockchain Platform in July of 2018. With a lot of interest and early adoption by customers, the next step in this evolution was to make it easy for business users to implement and further transform their processes using prebuilt blockchain applications. The first of…

Oracle’s Multitenant Option was introduced in 12c Release as an efficient response to the Cloud technology challenges by reducing costs, streamlining processes and managing resources effectively. The architectural model consists of a Container Database (CDB) that controls the instance-wide maintenance activities and contains zero or more isolated pluggable databases (PDB) independently managed in terms of resources and security.

Initially, Oracle did not enforce the model but kept the legacy structures (the older Non-CDB instances) intact. Recently the non-CDB Option was deprecated, a decision that drives Oracle users to start adopting and converting their infrastructure to the new Option. In turn, this posed several challenges of its own and one of those is changing Pluggable Database level name, Container Database name, or Database ID (DBID). 

One possible use case is when a backup file of a PDB is received from a third-party software vendor whose name needs to change to meet the organization’s naming standards or to better convey the purposes of the database. Another scenario is to change the DBID of a cloned database to maintain its unique backup information repository in recovery catalog. In these, and similar situations, we can follow the methods explained below to achieve the required modifications. 

So, here I will provide detailed steps for three different changes that can be implemented in your Multitenant Architecture CDB environment:
-Changing PDB name
-Changing CDB name
-Changing Oracle DBID for all PDB’s

Please note that these changes might have consequences such as impacting backup & recovery. They should not be deployed in a production environment without proper planning and thorough testing.
