Is there a way to discover the WORKSPACE name if I've forgotten it?

I cannot login to the APEX admin console since I've forgotten what the workspace name was.

I do know the SYSTEM user password.

Could you please help me recovering my workspace name?

There are two tables you can get this info from.


The schema that these tables reside in depends on the APEX version. By way of example, my vanilla Oracle 11.2 install has them in the APEX_030200 schema. To list: select USERNAME from DBA_USERS where USERNAME like 'APEX%'.

Thanks Phil...I was able to find my Workspace name. Now even after giving in the right workspace, I am not able to log in. I am logging in using SYSTEM user. I am supplying the right password because using the same password I can log in to SQLPLUS....What could i try now? Please help – user60899 Sep 28 '12 at 7:18
The APEX admin user is completely different to the database SYSTEM user. From sqlplus, run $ORACLE_HOME/apex/apxconf.sql to reset the APEX admin password. – Phil Sep 28 '12 at 14:49
