CREATE DIRECTORY OBJECTS FOR O/S DIRECTORIES
    -- ============================================
I have a plan to create directory data on the following path,
I want to make sure that following syntax means the folder data is specified by data,
and actually we are not creating data_dir manually.
    CREATE OR REPLACE DIRECTORY data_dir AS  '/u02/app/external_files/data';
Thank You for your help.

Not 100% sure what you mean, but running that statement in Oracle will not automatically create the directory for you. You must create it yourself and give access to the oracle user.

the Oracle command only creates the "DATA_DIR"  object


you must still go to your operating system and create the /u02/app/external_files/data   filesystem directory
