sys_context to get client info [message #503623] Mon, 18 April 2011 07:46 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm trying to use sys_context info to get the session info. I have a procedure in the base, which returns a string with the info. This procedure is called from oracle forms.

The problem I have is, since this procedure is called from the application server, the data returned is that of the application server, not the client.

I suppose one way would be to call sys_context directly from the forms rather than trough a stored procedure, but I had some problems with that.

Any ideas oh how to get over this?

Maybe, if you specify which "problems" you are talking about.

Can't give you details on that "problem" yet, as it seems to be working for some users, but not for the rest. I'll look into it and come back to you on that Smile

The main question tho is, if I can call sys_context in a stored procedure and get session info on the client (the one using forms), not the application server.

OK, the error I get when trying to run the sys_context() on the forms is: ora-32767 - No server connection for this operation.
It's working on 10g but gives (ora-32767) on 11g.

I don't use Forms 11g so ... can't even test it.

I did some Googling and visited My Oracle Support (MOS) - didn't find anything useful; there was a document on MOS that talks about ORA-32767 and "forms", but not directly about SYS_CONTEXT which suggests that the procedure should be stored and called from a form (which, obviously, isn't what you are after).

Sorry, can't help much.

OK, so I moved all the sys_context calls to the forms but it still returns application server info.
For example: sys_context('USERENV','OS_USER') will return the username application server uses, I'd like to get the username the form user used to log to the OS.
Can that be done with sys_context()?
