    I’m an “aficionado” of your blog.
    I known, there is the Apex forum for this questions, but I think is more efficient your answer…
    It’s easy or difficult to use multitenancy with Apex? Do you can write about this kind of development ?
    Many thanks for your help and for your blog.

    • Thanks for following! ;-)
      It’s an interesting question. APEX itself is multi-tenant and of course you could write multi-tenant apps. The challenge is more on your data model and data control. But, if available, features like RAS (or VPD) can greatly help.

    “The challenge is more on your data model ”
    unfortunately …is not elementary my dear Watson…
    I find this article for SQL Server: http://www.upsizing.co.uk/Art66_MultiTenantDesign_PrintLayout.htm
    but I don’t know if I can translate the functions in an Oracle architecture.

    • I quick glance tells me you would NOT want to replicate that approach in Oracle, but it’s possible.
      It would depend on your particular situation.
      I recommend you post this question on the forums or even the apex.world slack channel. They are great resources, lots of exposure, and easier to go back and forth with questions.

    Thank you Jorge,
    I will try with apex.world.
    I already posted in Apex forum, but no answer…

    I have a question regarding passing values from one page to another page in apex based on button click. I have selected Redirect to URL option and it allows me to pass up to 10 item values. I need to send 5 more values to the other page. How can I do this?? I looked around but none seem to work. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

    • I would argue that you rarely need to do something like this (I thinking never actually). Let the page submit. Branch to the new page (passing nothing). The new page can reference ALL the values from the previous page because they are in session state.
      Now, to answer your questions, you can build the URL manually and add the params you need. for example: P1_ITEM1,P1_ITEM2,P1_ITEM3:&VALUE1.,&VALUE2.,&VALUE2.
      Please use APEX forums for follow ups or slack channel found on apex.world.
      Thanks!
