List all the indexes for a table

To list all the indexes for a table:

select index_name from user_indexes
    where table_name = 'TABLE_NAME';

be aware that case is significant and that table names are in upper case.

If the table is a system table then it will not be listed in the user_indexes view, so instead use all_indexes:

select index_name from all_indexes
    where table_name = 'TABLE_NAME';
