10:50 Oracle ORDS - New features you can't ignore

Oracle ORDS has added some exiting new features in the past releases (from 17.4 to 18.3). We will cover some of these useful features. Specifically the "RESTful Services Pre-Hook Function" is extremely powerful and closes some gaps so that we can implement some interesting use cases more easily. Using the Pre-Hook we can provide a PL/SQL function to set up a security context before the actual request is processed. This is typically used for Oracle's Virtual Private Database (VPD) or Real Application Security (RAS). This proves also very helpful when using the autorest functionality. Because now we can audit the end user in the trigger. This was not possible before. Also, many (pl/sql) developers are struggling with the security integration on the application server side. This is highly dependent on the application server at hand (Weblogic, Tomcat, Glassfish) and not always easy to do. The Pre-Hook comes to the rescue here as well. Now we can provide the user identity and user roles by setting the http header variables X-ORDS-HOOK-USER and X-ORDS-HOOK-ROLES. We will cover relevant use cases, lots of samples and how tos. We will provide solutions for different security integrations (e.g. with Active Directory through Kerberos) and others. The names of the typically used http header variables have been changed (e.g. X-APEX-STATUS-CODE => X-ORDS-STATUS-CODE) and the old ones will be deprecated over time. We will show you what you need to take care of NOW so that you are well prepared for future releases.
