CAUSE
The issue is due to the value of "TEST.1DC.COM" for source_global_name
BINDS #4866688648:
 Bind#0
  oacdty=96 mxl=08(08) mxlc=00 mal=00 scl=00 pre=00
  oacflg=01 fl2=1000000 frm=01 csi=873 siz=96 off=0
  kxsbbbfp=12211adb0 bln=08 avl=08 flg=05
  value="<extract name>"
 Bind#1
  oacdty=96 mxl=15(15) mxlc=00 mal=00 scl=00 pre=00
  oacflg=01 fl2=1000000 frm=01 csi=873 siz=0 off=8
  kxsbbbfp=12211adb8 bln=15 avl=15 flg=01
  value="TEST.1DC.COM"     <=============== 
A database global name has other restrictions than normal sql objects.Several creative database names cause the register of Integrated Extract to fail as these names fail in dbms_assert.qualified_sql_name().
Example names are:
  ABC.COMPUTE-A1111.ORACLECLOUD.INTERNAL  # the Minus sign in the domain part
  TEST.1DC.COM                               # a part of the domain name starts with a number

SOLUTION
Please do the following to change from TEST.1DC.COM to TEST.DC.COM and then redo the REGISTER
SQL> alter database rename global_name to TEST.DC.COM
Note: Above change may break database links that point to this instance if using global naming.
On multi-tenant environments OGG currently checks following to sql names. 
1: global name of the container db 
2: full global name of the pdb 
3: short dbname of the pdb. 
So in addition to above change following is also needed on PDB
ALTER PLUGGABLE DATABASE RENAME GLOBAL_NAME TO <newname>

Did actual customers use this special name? Parameter query does not set domain

select value$ from sys.props$ where name='GLOBAL_DB_NAME';

This confirms that there are special characters in the GLOBAL_DB_NAME of the registered PDB. The internal integrated registration of OGG obtains this name through the DB parameter, and subsequent operations cannot parse this special character and report an error!

Then the solution is to adjust the parameter name of PDB and delete special characters!
