How to open pluggable database (PDBs) in Oracle 19 C?

SQL> conn sys/orcl as sysdba

SQL> show pdbs
    CON_ID CON_NAME                       OPEN MODE  RESTRICTED
---------- ------------------------------ ---------- ----------
         2 PDB$SEED                       READ ONLY  NO
         3 ONTOOR                         READ WRITE NO
         4 APEX_5                         MOUNTED
         5 APEX_19_2                      READ WRITE NO
         6 APEX_18_2                      READ WRITE NO

Preview So the open mode is mounted for PDB APEX_5. Lets open the PDB.

SQL> alter pluggable database APEX_5 open;
Pluggable database altered.
SQL> show pdbs
    CON_ID CON_NAME                       OPEN MODE  RESTRICTED
---------- ------------------------------ ---------- ----------
         2 PDB$SEED                       READ ONLY  NO
         3 ONTOOR                         READ WRITE NO
         4 APEX_5                         READ WRITE NO
         5 APEX_19_2                      READ WRITE NO
         6 APEX_18_2                      READ WRITE NO

  • After altering the Pluggable database OPEN and mode is turned to READ and WRITE.
  • To open all the available PDBs automatically we can create database STARTUP trigger.
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER open_all_pdbs
   AFTER STARTUP
   ON DATABASE
BEGIN
   EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter pluggable database all open';
END open_all_pdbs;

How to Close PDBs?

ALTER PLUGGABLE DATABASE apex_5 CLOSE;
