Updated On:


CA Workload Automation AE


DBA wants to configure/set "EXTPROC_DLLS=" parameter in extproc.ora file for testing purpose by using external procedure.

Below is the example for reference :


Please Share the  external procedure for Autosys which is used to connect from application to Database.

$ autoflags -a
1099 LINUX ORA 11.3.6 SP6


Release : 11.3.6

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


AutoSys uses OCI API supported by the Oracle client libraries which is a requirement for installing AutoSys to be able to connect to the DB. 

There are no custom C libraries that AutoSys uses to connect to the DB. 

Hence the EXTPROC_DLLS variable is not relevant to AutoSys product in any way.

Please contact Oracle for any further information on that environment variable.
