How can I Generate API Credentials for Oracle Database & Securing with OAuth2?

To generate the API credentials please follow the mentioned steps below:

  1. Create a Role and Privilege: You need to navigate to SQL Workshop > RESTful Services. From the left side of the tree, click on “Roles.” Create a new Role, e.g., “WebkulRole.”

From the left side of the tree, click on “Privileges.”

Create a new Privilege with the following details:
Name: “WebkulAccess”
Title: “WebkulAccess”
Roles: “WebkulRole”
Protected Modules: “Akeneo”

2. Test the Web Service Method:

After setting up the Privilege, test one of the methods of your web service. It should return a 401 Unauthorized response, indicating that the access is protected.

3. Create a New Client: Execute the following script to create a new client with client_credentials grant type. Path: SQL workshop > SQL Commands.

p_name => 'Webkul Access Client',
p_grant_type => 'client_credentials',
p_owner => 'OracleExampleWebkul',
p_description => 'An example client created for my blog.',
p_support_email => '[email protected]',
p_privilege_names => 'WebkulAccess'

4. Grant Client to Role: Execute the following script to grant the newly created client to the “WebkulRole” role:

oauth.grant_client_role(p_client_name => 'Webkul Access Client', p_role_name => 'WebkulRole');

5. Check Client ID and Secret: Use the following query to check if a record is created for the Client ID and Secret:

SELECT id, client_id, client_secret FROM user_ords_clients WHERE name = 'Webkul Access Client';

With these steps, your Oracle APEX application’s RESTful APIs will be secured using OAuth2. You will need to obtain an access token using the client_credentials grant type and include it in the Authorization header of their requests to access the protected resources. The access token can be obtained by making an OAuth2 token request using the Client ID and Secret you created earlier.

Configure the module-

  • Open the ORDS_REST_WKSP_WEBKUL_Akeneo.sql file change p_schema with your schema and p_url_mapping_pattern with your Workspace name and save the file.
  • p_schema => ‘schema-name’,
  • p_url_mapping_pattern => ‘schema-alias’,

Where: schema-name is the database schema name in all-uppercase.

schema-alias is an alias for the schema name that will appear in the URL the user will use to access Database Actions.


Configure the Module SQL file:

  • Import RESTful Service Module using ORDS_REST_WKSP_WEBKUL_Akeneo.sql to your Oracle APEX RESTful services on the path: SQL Workshop->RESTful Data Services->Import
  • Create Table and Sequence in your Oracle Apex using the file WebkulTableSequence.sql on the path: SQL Workshop->SQL Scripts->Upload

You need to open the Oracle website and select Oracle Apex.

Once you create the Workspace you will get the Workspace ID, username, and password that needs to be entered here.

Once you enter the details you can open the Oracle database.


You can check the exported data in the SQL workshop with exported job names.
