It is possible to run a web service outside of Oracle Application Express (APEX) successfully. However, when trying to run the web service using APEX_WEB_SERVICE.MAKE_REQUEST, the same request fails.

It has also been seen that some web services work most of the time, but sometimes fail with the error described.

What is causing this error?
