Add an Oracle Application Express app

Create an Oracle Application Express app using the Access Gateway Admin UI console.


Oracle Application Express Architecture

Before you begin

Ensure that:

  • Verify that Access Gateway is installed and configured. See Manage Access Gateway deployment.
  • Verify that Access Gateway uses your Okta org as an Identity Provider (IdP). See Configure an Identity Provider in Access Gateway.
  • Verify that you have administrator rights on your Okta org and can create groups and assign applications.
  • You have an external Oracle Application Express- based app that requires protection. Oracle Application Express version v10g and later are supported.
  • Appropriate DNS entries exist for the protected app and its external URL. For example:
    https://app-ex.externalexample.comExternal or customer facing application URL.

    Internal or protected application URL of Oracle Application Express.

This application uses header variables to exchange user information. You can use the Access Gateway sample header application. See Add a generic header application and Add a sample header application.
