Oracle 11g was supported till the 5.1.1 release. However, it is no longer supported for the Incorta metadata database starting the 5.1.2 release.

To use Oracle 12c or 19c for the Incorta metadata database in 5.1.2 or later releases, you must increase the maximum size of string columns in the metadata database by setting the MAX_STRING_SIZE property to EXTENDED. Contact your database administrator or Incorta Support to help configure this property depending on your database version. Note that once you change this property to EXTENDED, this change will affect all objects in the database and you cannot change it back to STANDARD. For more details, refer to Oracle 12c or Oracle 19c documentation.
