I have a test virtual environment that i am trying to develop in the same way that production is currently configured. In production there are 5 materialized views that query data from another database. I am not the creator of the virtual environment. It is an inheritance. The person before me only created 4 of the materialized views in the virtual environment. I used the ddl from production to try to create the missing materialized view in the virtual environment. I kept getting the error message ORA-01031: insufficient privileges. I could query the table referenced in the materialized view that I was trying to create. I checked the privileges in production against the virtual environment and they were the same. After much searching i just started testing adding privileges. When I granted the schema in the virtual environment global query rewrite I got a new error. ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object.

There is no other materialized view name in virtual environment that is already being used. I did notice that the tables that are referenced in the materialized views exist in the schema in the virtual environment. The table I am referencing in the materialized view is also used in 2 of the 5 materialized views.

4 of the 5 materialized views are being refreshed using force in production and the virtual environment. The one that I am trying to create is a complete refresh.

How do I successfully create the materialized view that is missing in the virtual environment?

you may be creating it with the same name which already exists in the database.. try to recreate it with a different name and use a synonym to point it to the created object.

You were absolutely right. There was a table with the exact same name. I deleted it and I was able to create the materialized view.
