Performing Flashback Restore using SCN or Time

This document explains how to enable database flashback, creating restore points and performing recovery using guaranteed restore point. In the following I will explain how we can perform a time based, or SCN based flashback restore. Before proceeding further, make sure that flashback is enabled, and flashback logs are also getting created in the fast recovery area. Flashback logs are managed automatically, and oldest flashback logs are purged by oracle if there is a space crunch sensed in the fast recovery area. Oracle will try to keep flashback logs until the time (in the past) specified in the parameter db_flashback_retention_target. However, this value is only a soft limit and specified in minutes.
