Working with proxy tables

Location transparency of remote data is enabled by creating a local proxy table that maps to the remote object. You can use a proxy table to access any object (including tables, views, and materialized views) that the remote database exports as a candidate for a proxy table. Use one of the following statements to create a proxy table:

  • If the table already exists at the remote storage location, use the CREATE EXISTING TABLE statement. This statement defines the proxy table for an existing table on the remote server.

  • If the table does not exist at the remote storage location, use the CREATE TABLE statement. This statement creates a new table on the remote server, and also defines the proxy table for that table.


You cannot modify data in a proxy table when you are within a savepoint. See Savepoints within transactions.

When a trigger is fired on a proxy table, the permissions used are those of the user who caused the trigger to fire, not those of the proxy table owner.
