workspace login using http header variable authentication

gernotFeb 18 2022 — edited Feb 22 2022

I have a problem using http header variable authentication for workspace login.
As instance admin I did following: manage instance => security => authentication control ==> HTTP Header Variable ==> I edited field "HTTP Header Variable Name(Value Required)" to APXUID (which ist the http header field which contains username) and I changed "Action if Username is Empty" to "Display Error" and edited error message ==> Apply Changes and "Make Current Schema"
calling APEX http://server:port/ords ==> then I get the error message entered in "Action if Username is Empty"
to verify that APXUID is set correctly I am using Tomcat valve
<Valve className = "org.apache.catalina.valves.ExtendedAccessLogValve" pattern = "date time c-ip cs(APXUID) sc-status time-taken cs-uri" />
and in the Tomcat logs I can see that APXUID is set correctly.
I am using custom HTTP header varaiable authentication for my applications and there I do not have any problems
But I like to use HTTP header varaiable authentication for workspace login (to use APEX developement environment) which is not working.
Do you have any suggestions?
Did I miss some configuration steps?
Is there a way to debug or configure extended logging?

Thanks
