In this article, I will guide you through the process of removing the login page from your Apex application. Having a login page can sometimes be unnecessary, especially if you want to create a public-facing application or simply want to bypass the login step for a specific user group. By following the steps below, you’ll be able to remove the login page and streamline the access to your Apex application.
Step 1: Access Apex Application Builder
To begin, log in to your Oracle Apex workspace and navigate to the Application Builder. This is where you can make changes to your Apex applications.
Step 2: Select the Application
Once you’re in the Application Builder, select the application for which you want to remove the login page. You’ll be presented with various options for customizing your application.
Step 3: Go to Shared Components
Next, click on the “Shared Components” tab. This is where you can find common components and settings that are shared across multiple pages in your Apex application.
Step 4: Manage Authentication Schemes
Within the Shared Components section, locate the “Authentication Schemes” option and click on it. Authentication Schemes define the method used to authenticate users accessing your Apex application.
Step 5: Edit the Default Scheme
In the Authentication Schemes page, you will see a list of authentication schemes that are available for your Apex application. Look for the default scheme, typically named “Apex Authentication”. Click on the Edit icon next to the default scheme.
Step 6: Disable Authentication
In the Edit Authentication Scheme page, you’ll find various settings related to authentication. Look for the “Enabled” option and uncheck the checkbox. This will disable authentication for your Apex application, effectively removing the login page.
Step 7: Apply Changes
After disabling authentication, make sure to save your changes by clicking on the “Apply Changes” button. Apex will prompt you to confirm the changes before applying them.
Step 8: Test Your Application
With the login page removed, you can now test your Apex application to ensure that the changes have taken effect. Open the application URL in your web browser and verify that you can access the application without being prompted for credentials.
Removing the login page from your Apex application can simplify the access process for your users. By following the steps outlined in this article, you should be able to remove the login page and improve the user experience. Remember to consider the security implications of removing the login page and ensure that your application’s data and functionality are appropriately protected.
