ORA-01031 when using JSON Data Guide

What is JSON Data Guide?

A JSON data guide lets you discover information about the structure and content of JSON documents stored in Oracle Database.

Some ways that you can use this information include:

  • Generating a JSON Schema document that describes the set of JSON documents.
  • Creating views that you can use to perform SQL operations on the data in the documents.
  • Automatically adding or updating virtual columns that correspond to added or changed fields in the documents.

For detailed information about JSON Data Guide and how to use it, please refer to:

grant create view to scott;

Now, I can run the above code successfully:
