Is it possible to get an execution plan of currently running query by sql_id?

I couldn't succeed with:

        (sql_id=>'b3x6apqyskn7x') report
from dual;

select * from table(dbms_xplan.display_cursor('sql_id', child_number));

You can find sql_id and child_number in V$SESSION (sql_id and sql_child_number columns).

    @MikhailAksenov: you can also pass null for the child_numbeer. In that case you will get the plans for all children
