Understanding Application Express User Roles

To access the Oracle Application Express development environment, users log in to a shared work area called a workspace. Users are divided into four primary roles:

  • Developers are users who create and edit applications

  • Workspace administrators are users who perform administrator tasks specific to a workspace such as managing user accounts, monitoring workspace activity, and viewing log files

  • End users have no development privileges and are defined to provide access to applications that do not use an external authentication scheme.

  • Oracle Application Express administrators are superusers that manage an entire hosted instance using the Application Express Administration Services application
