SCU 2021-3 or newer
As per the CIS documentation, check 2.2.15 in the 'CIS Oracle Database 19c Benchmark v1.0.0' standard relies on the following custom views for data collection, which are not predefined:
Therefore, if you did not create the custom views, and when you run a CER job for the CIS Oracle Database 19c Benchmark v1.0.0 standard, it fails to collect data from Oracle 19c assets. For more information, see https://workbench.cisecurity.org/benchmarks/5799/sections/597488.html
To resolve this issue and successfully perform data collection on systems running Oracle 19c using the CIS Oracle Database 19c Benchmark v1.0.0 standard, the following prerequisites must be met. To fulfill the prerequisites, sysdba or equivalent privileges are required.

NOTE: Alternately, if you do not want to evaluate check 2.2.15, you can create a copy of the CIS Oracle Database 19c Benchmark v1.0.0 standard and delete check 2.2.15 from the copied standard and use it for further assessment.
