Application Builder Icon Missing

Hi,

I am a newbie. I have brought up apex 4.1.1 on aws RDS Oracle 11g and have logged in as INTERNAL. My problem is I have been searching for Application Builder menu item or icon so i can start building applications but I can't find it.

I only see Home, Manage Instance, Manage Requests, Manage Workspace, and Monitor Activity.

kindly advice me on how to get the application builder icon, or do I need to install something else?

Many thanks

    Welcome to the forum. Please read the FAQ and forum sticky threads (if you haven't done so already), and update your forum profile with a real handle instead of "987830".

    When you have a problem you'll get a faster, more effective response by including as much relevant information as possible upfront. This should include:

    <li>Full APEX version
    <li>Full DB/version/edition/host OS
    <li>Web server architecture (EPG, OHS or APEX listener/host OS)
    <li>Browser(s) and version(s) used
    <li>Theme
    <li>Template(s)
    <li>Region/item type(s) (making particular distinction as to whether a "report" is a standard report, an interactive report, or in fact an "updateable report" (i.e. a tabular form)

    With APEX we're also fortunate to have a great resource in apex.oracle.com where we can reproduce and share problems. Reproducing things there is the best way to troubleshoot most issues, especially those relating to layout and visual formatting. If you expect a detailed answer then it's appropriate for you to take on a significant part of the effort by getting as far as possible with an example of the problem on apex.oracle.com before asking for assistance with specific issues, which we can then see at first hand.

    You're recommended to complete the <i>2 Day + Application Express Developer's Guide </i> tutorial (if that's not what you're already doing).

    Home, Manage Instance, Manage Requests, Manage Workspace, and Monitor Activity are the administration components in the internal workspace. See the "Setting Up Your Own Local Environment" section for how to create your own workspaces in which you will use the Application Builder.

    Hello 987830,

    Please use a forum handle (name or nickname) so we know can address you in a more proper way.

    About your question: You logged into the Administration Service and not into the workspace.

    Assuming <URL> is your URL and <SESSION> is a long number that gets generated.

    Go to http://<URL>/apex/

    Check in what the URL changes.

    It should forward you to :

    http://<URL>/apex/f?p=4550:1:<SESSION>::NO:::

    you probably are on:

    http://<URL>/apex/f?p=4550:10:<SESSION>::NO:::


    Note the different page ID in bold.

    I hope this solves your problem!


    Regards,
    Dennis
