Changes

When you use a secure application context, it can only be changed with dbms_session if it is called from a package or procedure that is designated for this context when it was created. This is part of the security surrounding this feature. An arbitrary user or package may not change the context values, as these are often used to decide on VPD predicates from a policy function or other security features and procedures.
