APEX Create Workspace

with 2 comments

In a prior post, I showed you how to access Oracle Database 11g XE APEX. This post shows you how to create a basic workspace against a student database (or, what Oracle lables a schema, which is synonymous with a database).


  1. You start the process by accessing the Oracle Database 11g APEX, which you can access at http://localhost:8080/apex by default on the server. If you’ve got a static IP address for your instance, you can replace localhost with the IP address or hostname for the IP address.

    • Workspace: INTERNAL
    • Username:  ADMIN
    • Password:  installation_system_password


  1. After logging into the Oracle Application Express (APEX) system, you see the Home page at the left. Click the Manage Workspace button on the Home page.


  1. Manage Workspace Dialog: After clicking the Manage Workspace button on the Home page, you see four major options to manage workspaces. They are the Workspace Actions, Workspace Reports, Export Import, and Manage Applications. You want to click on the Create Workspace to create a new workspace.


  1. Identify Workspace Diaglog: Enter a Workspace Name and Workspace Description. Then, click on the Next button move forward in the workflow.


  1. Create Workspace Dialog: You create a workspace, APEX presumes you want to create a new schema. That’s why the Re-use existing schema drop down chooses No by default. You enter the Schema Name as STUDENT, the Password for the STUDENT schema, and an initial Space Quota (MB) of 100. Then, click the Next button to continue.


  1. Identify Schema Dialog: If the schema you chose exists, you get the correction dialog. You need to change the Re-use existing schema drop down from No to Yes. Then, click the Next button to continue.


  1. Identify Administrator Dialog: Here you enter an Administrator Username, Password, First Name, Last Name, and email address. Then, click the Next button to continue.


  1. Confirm Request Dialog: Here you review your entries and click the Confirm Request button to continue.


  1. Success Confirmation Dialog: Here you click the Done Request button to continue.

As always, I hope this helps you learn how to create a workspace.
