            • Because i have Application items his computation point "After Authentication", In some cases i want to reset it with new values, I can do that when force logout all users from all sessions.

              In which cases? Sounds like something that could be done far less invasively by conditionally running application computations or processes at other processing points.

              Sorry, I don't know what a "special user" is. Please explain in more detail.

                This sounds like you want to "patch" the application.

                 

                As such, you'll need to:

                • wait for next "Maintenance Window"
                • lock the application
                • apply the patch
                • verify that it works
                • unlock the application.

                    Why?

                     

                    If the problem you are trying to solve is the need to reset/refresh the values of some items in session state, why go to the drastic length of forcing users to log out, disrupting their sessions and potentially causing them to lose their work? How are they going to feel about that? Why can't these changes be triggered in the course of normal application processing?

                     

                    If you are having difficulty in describing the problem in English, then demonstrating it with an example on apex.oracle.com might be more productive.

                      You are right, I will be handling this issue with another technique.
