Known Issues

  • APEX Developer Password
    • You will need to reset your password from Administration > Manage Users and Groups to run applications using Application Express Authentication. Your password is not the same as your SSO password!!!
    • SSO not available in EA3. The Application Builder utilizes SSO authentication, however, you can not use SSO authentication for any applications defined in EA3.
  • Supported Browsers
    • For EA3 please use latest Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer 9.0 or higher.

  • Page Designer
    • Some component properties have been renamed, and will also appear in different categories in the Property Editor. We have done this to try and provide more consistent user experience when editing similar properties across components, and also for more succinct property labeling.
    • General
      • When using Internet Explorer, drag and drop in both the tree and grid layout will not scroll when the mouse reaches the edge of the region. A workaround is to use the scroll wheel while holding the left mouse button down.
    • Component Types
      • Page Item
        • Renaming a page item will not automatically update the page item name in computations, dynamic actions, ... (bug #20422518)
        • Removing a page item will not automatically delete/update components which do use the page item name (computations, dynamic actions, ...) (bug #20422531)
      • Tabular Forms
        • Popup LOV and Popup Key LOV show "Static Values" as possible "List of Values Type", but those column types don't support static LOVs. (bug #20445763)
      • Printing of Interactive Reports, Tabular Forms and Classic Reports
        • No conversion of existing Width and Height values if property "Units" is changed (bug #20445808)
        • Units, Width and Height are always defaulted to Inches, but should be done based on Application Language. (bug #20445808)
      • Classic and Interactive Report, Tabular Form
        • Quick Pick for 'Link Text' property does return invalid icon references (bug #20440381)
    • Grid Layout
      • Moving or copying a region near a read only region from the global page in such a way that it would affect the grid settings of the read only region results in an error. Work around is to use the property editor. (bug #20447031)
      • Table grids need special handling for labels which take up a grid column (bug #20446635)
      • Using arrow keys to move the selection does not always work as expected. (bug #20446375)
      • Grid Settings for Sub Regions are not used (bug #20351490)
    • Property Editor
      • In the LOV Dialog the entire row should be the mouse target to return the value, not just the first cell. (bug #20445871)
      • LINK property types show a button in the Property Editor, which can have long button text in some cases, and this then extends horizontally and causes horizontal scroll beyond the right border of all other properties (for example look at a delete button). (bug #20445567)
      • If multi-editing components, and one or more of the components are read-only, then all properties displayed should be read-only. Properties are editable in the PE, in the case where the last component selected is editable. That said, in this case it is still not possible to save any changes to the read-only component, which is good.
    • Notifications
      • Error and success notifications do not get hidden upon new component selection, which they should.
      • Success notifications are incorrectly hidden too soon, when you see one as a result navigating from a different page (for example opening Page Designer, edit a page template and go back to Page Designer).
      • The close notification button displayed to the right of the notification is missing the required substitution to be used for button text.

  • Interactive Reports
    • Pivot view errors out if computation column used (bug #18629862)

  • Additional functionality in Component View which will NOT be made available in Page Designer
    • Page# Input Box doesn't support page alias as it's supported in Component View (will not be implemented)
    • Deprecated Region Types SVG Charts and Simple Charts don't expose chart specific properties -> Fallback to Component View
    • Creating a Legacy Calendar with drag & drop or context menu doesn't create associated buttons and hidden page items. Use 'Create Page Component' in Create menu instead.
    • Charts: Use Custom XML = Yes doesn't hide all the declarative properties. - Documented in help text of property.

  • Known Issues in Page Designer planned for post APEX 5.0
    • Tabular Forms
      • Primary Key Source properties are always displayed, but should only be displayed if the current column name matches to one of the PK columns in the MRU process.
      • Default properties are always displayed, but should only be displayed if the current column name does NOT match with one of the PK columns in the MRU process and the column isn't a derived column.
      • Setting a column to "Date Picker (Classic) [deprecated]" and picking a format mask results in a runtime error when the report is getting executed (bug #20445775)
    • Charts
      • Gantt Start Date Value & End Date Value are not defined as dates
      • Y Axis Overlay should be hidden if Y Axis Overlay Sorted is set
      • Y Axis Overlay Sorted should be hidden if Y Axis Overlay is set
      • Doesn't check if X Axis Max > X Axis Min
      • Doesn't check if Gantt Static End Date > Gantt Static Start Date
    • Printing of Interactive Reports, Tabular Forms and Classic Reports
      • Sum of Column Widths is not validated and can be > 100 %
      • If Columns don't have defined a "Print Width" then they will not be printed (as soon as one of the column does have one)
      • Link Example is only visible after saving changes
    • Page Search
      • A long property value should just show the part of the value where the search string was found. (bug #20445511)
      • Should show a message if nothing has been found (bug #20445492)
    • Properties of type "Item" should not show page items in LOV dialog which have already been picked (if multi select is allowed)
    • Properties where Restricted Characters are set, don't prevent entering those values immediately.
    • Setting "Heading Type" <> "Custom" will not disable "Heading" property in report columns. Note: When the report is executed, it will always respect the "Heading Type" setting and ignore changed column heading settings. (bug #20445742)

  • Missing Functionality in Page Designer and available in Component View, which is planned for post APEX 5.0
    • Printing of Interactive Reports, Tabular Forms and Classic Reports
      • Total Width is not displayed
      • No Buttons to "Recalculate" or "Reset Column Width"
    • Creating a Tabular Form doesn't create the MRU processes or any validation. Use 'Create Form Region' in Create menu instead.
    • Missing ability to build static LOVs declaratively.
    • Context Menu doesn't support to migrate a classic report into an IR.
    • Context Menu doesn't support to synchronize the order of the columns with the SQL statement.
    • Property Editor: Some property types are excluded from multi-edit, where they just not shown in the Property Editor. This may be confusing, for example if you are editing a condition type for multiple components, and you select say 'SQL Expression', then the SQL Expression property won't display, because property types using the code editor are not currently supported with multi-edit. We need to inform the user which property types are excluded from multi-edit.
