How to Prevent the App ID of a Deleted Application from being Reused (Doc ID 2285768.1)

Last updated on JULY 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (formerly HTML DB) - Version 5.0.2.00 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

If a user in one workspace deletes an application, that App ID then becomes available again in the APEX instance.

If a user then creates a new application that App ID can be used. This has caused some issues where users have a link to the old deleted application. When they use this link, they then have access to the newly created application.

Is there a way to ensure that an App IF once used cannot be used again?
