Configuring Oracle REST Data Services requires that you copy the images directory, if you are using an older release validate the Oracle REST Data Services installation, configure static files support, and secure Oracle REST Data Services.
6.5.1 Copying the Images Directory
Whether you are loading a new installation or upgrading from a previous
release, you must copy the images directory from the top level of
apex\images directory, for example
C:\TEMP, to the location used by
your Oracle REST Data
During an upgrade, you overwrite your existing images directory. Before you begin the
upgrade, to ensure that you can revert to the previous version, Oracle recommends
that you create a copy of your existing images directory for Oracle APEX, indicating the release number of the images (for example,
6.5.2 Validating the Oracle REST Data Services Installation
In a new installation or upgrade of Oracle APEX and if you are using Oracle REST Data Services 21.2.1 or older, you must validate the Oracle REST Data Services installation.
For validating the Oracle REST Data Services installation in a new installation or upgrade of Oracle APEX, run the following command:
java -jar ords.war validate [--database <dbname>]

6.5.3 Configuring Static File Support
For configuring static files, you must run
apex_rest_config.sql after a new installation of Oracle APEX.
Oracle APEX enables application developers to include static files with
their applications. Static files can be associated with a
workspace, an application, a plug-in, or an application theme.
When using Oracle REST Data
Services as your web server, static files are served using RESTful
service module built into Oracle APEX. Therefore, you must run
apex_rest_config.sql after a new
installation of Oracle APEX.
6.5.4 Securing Oracle REST Data Service
In a configuration for Oracle APEX, Oracle recommends setting the parameter
wwv_flow_epg_include_modules.authorize activates the white list of
callable procedures which ships with Oracle APEX and prohibits calls to other procedures.
