It isn't as simple as the get_ddl functions.  It will require a little more code and effort.

There are script examples for it out there if you look around.

Another option would be to do a expdp of the schema you want

later do a impdp only with sqlfile to get the total ddl of the schema with option content=metadata_only

refer to this question in stack over flow where in the scenario has been described in other way around by taking the export with metadata option and doing an import with sql file(import/export --data pump)

Hi, this works for me:

set long 90000
set feedback off
set echo off
set heading on
set lines 100
set arraysize 100
SPOOL /tmp/

   dbms_metadata.GET_DDL(u.object_type,u.object_name,'&&SCHEMA') ||';'
   dba_objects u
   owner = '&&SCHEMA'
