    Unanswered: Apex User id

    Hi,
    I have a web application developed on Applucation express. Users to this application are LDAP authenticated and RLS is applied over the database tables.
    In the RLS policy function I want to find out the application userid without passing it from the frontend. I tried sys_context function but didnt get the solution. (I might have not checked all the options).
    Can we catch the application userid at database side (without passing it from the application) when user tries to access database object???
    Please help me out.

    Thanks!!

    NO

    The DB is isolated from the user by multiple layers.

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
