Use this procedure with
apex_util.find_security_group_id to ease the use of the mail package in batch mode. This procedure is especially useful when a schema is associated with more than one workspace. For example, you might want to create a procedure that is run by a nightly job to email all outstanding tasks.
APEX_UTIL.SET_SECURITY_GROUP_ID ( p_security_group_id IN NUMBER);
Table 35-105 SET_SECURITY_GROUP_ID Parameters
This is the security group id of the workspace you are working in.
The following example sends an alert to each user that has had a task assigned within the last day.
create or replace procedure new_tasks is l_workspace_id number; l_subject varchar2(2000); l_body clob; l_body_html clob; begin l_workspace_id := apex_util.find_security_group_id (p_workspace => 'PROJECTS'); apex_util.set_security_group_id (p_security_group_id => l_workspace_id); l_body := ' '; l_subject := 'You have new tasks'; for c1 in (select distinct(p.email_address) email_address, p.user_id from teamsp_user_profile p, teamsp_tasks t where p.user_id = t.assigned_to_user_id and t.created_on > sysdate - 1 and p.email_address is not null ) loop l_body_html := '<p />The following tasks have been added.'; for c2 in (select task_name, due_date from teamsp_tasks where assigned_to_user_id = c1.user_id and created_on > sysdate - 1 ) loop l_body_html := l_body_html || '<p />Task: '||c2.task_name||', due '||c2.due_date; end loop; apex_mail.send ( p_to => c1.email_address, p_from => c1.email_address, p_body => l_body, p_body_html => l_body_html, p_subj => l_subject ); end loop; end;
