This preface contains:
The following are changes in Oracle Application Express Administration Guide for Oracle Application Express release 4.2.
The following features are new in this release:
Team Development Attachments
Developers can now add external documents as attachments to features, bugs, and ToDos.
Manage Packaged Applications
Configure Packaged Application Authentication Options
Instance administrators can define authentication options for packaged application.
View Information About Installed Packaged Application
Instance administrators can view the popularity of any given packaged database and Websheet application on a given instance.
Monitoring the Progress of Packaged Application Installations
Instance administrators can monitor users and installation performance of packaged applications.
Proxies can now be defined at the instance level superseding those at the application and Web Service reference level.
All Outbound traffic HTTPS
When enabled, this new instance setting requires that all outbound traffic use the HTTPS protocol.
See "Requiring HTTPS".
When a workspace is provisioned and Oracle Application Express is creating the associated database user, tablespace, and datafile, the underlying tablespace can be created as a bigfile tablespace that can grow to a very large size (terabytes), overcoming the limitation of smallfile tablespaces.
Tablespaces created by Oracle Application Express when provisioning a workspace can be created as an encrypted tablespace, assuming the database administrator has created and opened an encryption wallet with a master encryption key set.
Manage Application ID Range
Instance administrators can control the range for IDs of new database or Websheet applications.
Create Multiple Workspaces
Instance administrators can now utilize a wizard to provision multiple workspaces at once.
Enable Application Tracing
Instance administrators can enable or disable application tracing to control when database trace files can be created by an application which has Debug enabled.
Reporting on Interactive Report Subscriptions
Enables instance administrators to monitor and review interactive report subscriptions.
Failed Login Handling
Administrators can define a period of time users must wait following each failed login attempt. Administrators can also define a lockout period following a specified number of failed attempts.
Define Resource Consumer Group
Instance administrators can associate a workspace with a Resource Consumer Group to better manage the resource utilization of different workspaces within a shared environment.
