Reset a sequence in Oracle

0 votes

In PostgreSQL I can do something like this:

ALTER SEQUENCE serial RESTART WITH 0;

Is there an Oracle equivalent?

You can try out something like this

create or replace
procedure reset_seq( p_seq_name in varchar2 )
is
    l_val number;
begin
    execute immediate
    'select ' || p_seq_name || '.nextval from dual' INTO l_val;

    execute immediate
    'alter sequence ' || p_seq_name || ' increment by -' || l_val || 
                                                          ' minvalue 0';

    execute immediate
    'select ' || p_seq_name || '.nextval from dual' INTO l_val;

    execute immediate
    'alter sequence ' || p_seq_name || ' increment by 1 minvalue 0';
end;
