Retrieve user ID from the current Oracle session [message #329984] Fri, 27 June 2008 03:31 Go to next message

I need to assign username from the current user to the text field in the project. I use the function "user" but all times it gives me back value "ANONYMOUS". We are small callcentrum and our telephonists fill-in the information in projects. It would be fine if I could see, how much records have done each of the telephonists. So I added text field telephonist to the project and want to autofill this field using function user.
Each of the telephonists log into the project using his own username and password and I dont know, why this function gives me back value ANONYMOUS.

I am not familiar with apex yet, by the way, so please if you could help me...I would be grateful.

"user" is a pseudo column just like sysdate. The Apex variable holding the Apex user name used during Apex login is APP_USER.
