I am developing an application that has a dad setup, but still needs to be able to read the client's oracle username. I have tried sys_context() and ora_util, but all I get as a username is the DAD login and the client IP address. I found something that uses LDAP and i would be able to pull the information from there, but it seems like it would be a pain.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what would be best to get the user's oracle username?

Thanks in advance,

MStonis

SQL> SELECT sys_context('USERENV', 'SESSION_USER') from dual;

SYS_CONTEXT('USERENV','SESSION_USER')
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCOTT

or
SQL> SELECT user FROM dual;

USER

All this returns me is the dad user name.

For example:
When I run sys_context sys_context('USERENV', 'SESSION_USER'), I should get 'mstonis'. What I get is 'dadowner'.

Since I am not directly logging in, but using the dad, I don't know how to get a username from my computer. I can get the IP address of the computer that I am using, but I would like to get a name (either oracle username or windows/network username).

As far as I know, the browser only knows the login name used on the client's browser machine and it's IP address (although the real IP may be hidden e.g. VPN network etc). You can try running something like this - or if you have debuf turned on for the DAD and you enter a bad URL, it will show you all the environment info.

CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE env
AS
BEGIN
   HTP.htmlOpen;
      HTP.headOpen;
         HTP.title ('Environment Test');
      HTP.headClose;
      HTP.bodyOpen;
         HTP.hr;
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('REMOTE_ADDR=' || OWA_UTIL.get_cgi_env ('REMOTE_ADDR'));
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('REMOTE_USER=' || OWA_UTIL.get_cgi_env ('REMOTE_USER'));
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('HTTP_HOST=' || OWA_UTIL.get_cgi_env ('HTTP_HOST'));
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('SERVER_NAME=' || OWA_UTIL.get_cgi_env ('SERVER_NAME'));
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('SERVER_PORT=' || OWA_UTIL.get_cgi_env ('SERVER_PORT'));
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('owa_util.GET_OWA_SERVICE_PATH=' || OWA_UTIL.get_owa_service_path);
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('owa_sec.get_user_id=' || owa_sec.get_user_id);
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('owa_sec.get_password=' || owa_sec.get_password);
         HTP.br;
         HTP.p ('<H1>All CGI Environment variables...</H1>');
         OWA_UTIL.print_cgi_env;
      HTP.bodyClose;
   HTP.htmlClose;
END;

you can only pick from whatever you see in the output from "OWA_UTIL.print_cgi_env". Check to see what you get - it varies by version.
