APEX_WEB_SERVICE: INCREASE SIZE OF HEADER.VALUE ATTRIBUTE (Doc ID 2584031.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 18, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (APEX) - Version 5.1.0 to 19.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle APEX 050100 - APEX_050100.wwv_flow_webservices_api - Type P_HEADERS in package specification.

When using APEX_WEB_SERVICE to call a REST service, a  JWT (JSON Web Token) is used in header calls of the REST service.

The value field size is only 4K VARCHAR2(4096).

JWT token exceeds this size and fails due to only allowing 4K.
This limitation still exists in APEX 19.1.

Is it possible to resolve this 4K limitation?
