VERSION Run Control Options

I have to keep looking this up, so I’m writing it down to make it easier to find next time! There are three modes for the VERSION app engine:

  • Report Mode
    Evaluates the VERSION counters and reports any changes needed; does not change data.
  • Classic Mode
    Resets all the VERSION counters to their starting value (1)
  • Enhanced Mode
    The default mode – it will “advance VERSION counters in a preditable manner” according to Oracle Support.

The name of your run control is how you change the behavior of the VERSION app engine.

  • Report Mode: REPORTONLYxxx – The run control must start with the REPORTONLY value (not case-sensitive)
  • Classic Mode: RESETVERSIONSxxx – The run control must start with the RESETVERSIONS value (not case-sensitive)
  • Enhanced Mode: Any value other than the two above will trigger Enhanced Mode

There is much more to running VERSION, but I’ll save that for another post.
