Hi All,

I have a doubt, we are going to migrate the non partitioned table to partition table.

Going to use List partition.

The table having one primary key, and 5 normal indexes

My understanding is, before migration we need to all constrains and indexes from table and
post conversion, we need to recreate primary key and all other indexes.

And primary key as Global index and other column level indexes are as Local index.

Is my understanding is correct?

Also I have doubt in creating global and local indexes, there were two types of index creation I got from internet, not sure which one i need to follow.

Global Index:

CREATE INDEX IDX_ZIP_T1 ON CTA_PARTITIONTEST (SZZIP) GLOBAL;

or

CREATE INDEX item_idx
on CTA_PARTITIONTEST (SZZIP)
GLOBAL
(PARTITION city_idx1),
(PARTITION city_idx1,
(PARTITION city_idx1),
(PARTITION city_idx1),
(PARTITION city_idx1);

Local index:

CREATE INDEX IDX_ZIP_T1 ON CTA_PARTITIONTEST (SZZIP) LOCAL;

or

CREATE INDEX item_idx
on CTA_PARTITIONTEST (SZZIP)
LOCAL
(PARTITION city_idx1),
(PARTITION city_idx1,
(PARTITION city_idx1),
(PARTITION city_idx1),
(PARTITION city_idx1);

Which of the above options are correct for creating global and local indexes.

And which one is best to moving existing constraints and indexes.

Please suggest.

Welcome to the forum.
Please read the OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.

For your question, I think you may be over-complicating it. For example:
orclz>
orclz> create table emp as select * from scott.emp;

Table created.

orclz> create index pk_emp on emp(empno);

Index created.

orclz> create index en_emp on emp(ename);

Index created.

orclz> alter table emp modify partition by list(deptno) automatic (partition p10 values(10))
  2  online
  3  update indexes
  4  (pk_emp global,
  5  en_emp local) ;

Table altered.

Please use [code] tags in your posts. I asked you to do this before. It is not polite to ignore the forum rules, to which you have already been directed..

As for your problem, PK_TEST_TEST is not the same as PK_CTA_TEST
