APEX 19.1 Interactive Grid Shows Empty Value for Built-in Variable APP_USER (Doc ID 2574636.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 18, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (APEX) - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrading APEX from 18.1 to 19.1, 

the built-in substitution string "APP_USER" is not filled with the correct value, when it is referenced in interactive grids as "&APP_USER." , "V('APP_USER')" or ":APP_USER".

Instead an empty string is got as value. 

The issue DOESN'T OCCUR in version 18.1  

The issue OCCURS in version 19.1

How do we get the value of "APP_USER" in interactive grid ?
