Apex authentication/authorization


Posted by Hafed | Posted in apex(htmldb), oracle | Posted on 15-02-2011

While Working on setting up an authentication/authorization scheme for an Oracle Apex application, I came across an excellent link   by Duncan Mein here and a step by step procedure by Afaq Ayub here.

The difference between authentification and authorization:

Authentication Scheme: control access to the application. That’s why you have a login page. You can use the application default, the one provided by the database and your own custom scheme.

Authorization Scheme: control access to page items, regions and pages. That’s why you see the authorization link (pages) and security tabs (items and regions ) everywhere when developping your application.
