2 Workspace and Application Administration
In an Oracle APEX development environment, users sign in to a shared work area called a workspace. Workspace administrators monitor and administer a shared work area called a workspace.
- Understanding Workspace Administration
Use Workspace Administration to monitor and administer a workspace.
- Using the Manage Service Page
Use the Manage Service page to manage service requests, configure workspace preferences, edit workspace messages, and view reports. Additionally, administrators use this page to clear log files, manage session state, clear cached content, and manage interactive report settings.
- Making a Service Request
Workspace administrators use the Request Service page to request a schema, add storage space, terminate a workspace, or request another workspace.
- Configuring Workspace Preferences
Configure workspace preferences for workspace login controls, access to App Builder and SQL Workshop, support for PL/SQL editing and RESTful services, and access to Team Development.
- Defining a Workspace Message
Workspace administrators can quickly communicate with other users by creating workspace messages.
- Configuring an Environment Banner for a Workspace
Configure a environment banner for a workspace on the Workspace Administration page.
- Managing Users in a Workspace
Create new user accounts, manage existing user accounts, and change user passwords.
- Accessing the Data Dictionary Cache Report from Workspace Administration
Access the Data Dictionary Cache report from Workspace Administration to view statistics and data analysis of schema tables and caches in a workspace.
- Purging the Developer Activity and Click Count Log Files
Manually purge developer logs and the External Count Clicks log on the Log files page. Log entries older than one month are automatically deleted.
- Managing Session State for a Workspace
A session establishes persistence (or stateful behavior) across page views. Workspace administrators can view session details for the current session or for recent sessions, purge the current session state, or purge sessions based on their age.
- Managing User Preferences
Developers can use preferences to store values for a specific Oracle APEX user across distinct sessions. Once set, these preferences can be removed programmatically or manually. Administrators can set user preferences by creating a page process, by the calculation of a preference Item Source Value, or programmatically by using a PL/SQL API.
- Managing Page and Region Caching
Improve an application's performance by taking advantage of page and region caching.
- Changing Build Status for Multiple Applications
Configure the Build Status attribute at the workspace-level to prevent an application from being modified by other developers.
- Leveraging App Builder Defaults
App Builder Defaults enable developers to reduce the number of steps needed to create a new application.
- Monitoring Activity Within a Workspace
Monitor developer activity and changes within a workspace by accessing the Monitor Activity page.
- Viewing Workspace Dashboards
Use the Dashboard page to view details about the current workspace and monitor overall workspace activity.
